Gosh, it looks like our Marina Palmira free shuttle might need a transplant? That's the La Panga restaurant behind the diagnosticians....
Here's Sharktank, our little dinghy, on a side trip off the big boat.
Our Christmas mast in the salon!
Here is a pescadero camp on an island we anchored overnight. The local fishermen often will camp out in groups overnight while out fishing. Sometimes there will be several pangas (their fishing boats) at a camp overnight.
Tanque de Tiburon is a Morgan 43 sailboat with lots of wonderful history, good friends and good times. Thanks to Earl and maria, Ginger and Tom, we now sail their boat!
Tanque de Tiburon translates to Sharktank. The "shark" came from Linda's Parrot Head name as a nurse that dives i.e."Nurseshark". Bill's Parrot Head name is "Tanker6" from his USMC Tanker history, of course. Hence, Shark + Tank....
Bill is retired from the Marine Corps and Linda is a retired Army Nurse. When not on the boat in the Sea of Cortez, they reside in Sierra Vista, Arizona, their Koi pond and their Sonoran desert tortoise, Genie.
Between the two, there are 5 adult children, some spouses and now 9 grandchildren spread out between California, Arizona, Georgia and Texas!
Both are retired although Linda still very rarely dabbles in nursing or related counseling for boat sheckles. Check out her website:
