Mas La Paz....and off to Las Islas

Above is a Shack burger ( delish!), dock party food, Bill's ribs at Buffalo and a cactus/napolo chip spread that was yummy.

We arrived La Paz on Mar 9th and have decided it's time now for an island "fix". We'll head to Espiritu Santo in the morning for a week or so. Our marina slip is being saved for us. We will be back mid-March and may be off the wifi grid for the time being. We'll send a SPOT report to our "list" whenever we change positions.

We've had wonderful meals in town, walked the Malecon (boardwalk), met old and new friends, provisioned, done laundry, painted exteriorwood (Bill), and a head (Linda), had a new step made Bill has aptly named "the Quarter Deck", cleaned and polished....and just relaxed and enjoyed the marina's "ambiance".


We have dined out somewhere almost every day - to include with Lisa of s/v Andiamo (currently house sitting in La Paz), who was also our mother Taxi and a wonderful driver she is here! Had a few dinners with s/v Charlotte Alane's Gig and Steve until the headed north, heading home this week. New friends on s/v Intrepid II from Canada, Kelly and Carol, have been good dock neighbors and dinner guests aboard. Also here now are s/v Tambaran (Carla and Denny) from San Carlos as well as Frank and Margaret on s/v Mood Indigo. We've also watched out next door neighbor on a HUGE catamaran, s/v Orion, Mike and Cathy, come and go with their multitude of guests. Mike said "That's what I get for buying a floating hotel..."...which it is.

So the La Paz Bungee is grabbing us, pulling us deeper into the marina life. So before we are sitting on our coffee grounds and glued to the dock, we thought we better get a move on for a week or so and drop an anchor at a few different anchorages, look for some adventures, like swimming with the sea lions, dinghy'ing to shore for a beach or a palapa bar or just hanging on the hook "somewhere south of somewhere".

More La Paz pics to follow later.
