Hola La Paz!
26 February 2016
We left Bahia Falsa and pulled into Marina Cortez as the tide was coming in. It was carrying us along at about 8 knots and when we turned to pull in to the marina, we were being pushed side ways quite a bit but we made it safely into the marina where the nice security men were waiting at the dock to help us with the lines. The marina isn't full. There are probably 10 sailboats here and the same amount of large power boats. There are 3 restaurants in the harbor. The shower facilities are adequate. We were advised that the water was not potable and that 5 gallon bottles of water would be delivered to the boat for a small fee however the boats on either side of us still use the water from the hose. We opted for the 5 gallon bottles (read Debra :)).
We found a couple of bars that sold IPA beer which was a score for Brian. La Paz is a huge city. It has been fun finding the good shops to buy things like bread, the farmer's market, the fish market, etc.
Tonight we had fish taco's and they were fantastico!!
We will be here for another 3 weeks. Boat work needs to be accomplished and we are well on the way. We completed the 3rd coat of varnish on the wood of the cabin, one more left tomorrow and then we will work on painting.
The weather is quite nice, high 70's low 80's during the day and it cools down with a nice breeze to about 60 at night.
We always have music wafting over from the marina restaurants or downtown, lol.
We've been doing lots of walking in the morning for exercise before it gets too hot. Most of the locals exercise at night along the malecon. No jackets required.
