Back in the USA.......

We stayed at Drew's house near Apache Junction for FIVE WEEKS!  It was one of those silver linings.  Drew's office is at home, but he is usually traveling at least two weeks out of every month for work. Because of Covid19 he was home and isolating. He was getting a lot of yard projects done which we could help with and he was able to help us with some van projects. We also did most of the cooking. It was a great visit!

While we were waiting to see how things were developing in Washington we decided to tackle the removal of the faded decals on the van: Before:
After we got the decals off we had a mobile repair/painter come to do some touch up.
He did a great job.

Besides the painting we got the coach AC fixed, Jim fixed the generator, we painted the drawers in the head, and we added some portable solar panels. 
We were still there for Mother's …

The Great Escape............

We have made it to our son’s house in Arizona. Loomba-Loomba is in storage in San Carlosand ready for hurricane season. We are so thankful that things fell into place for us to get across the border so quickly.
We are, however, worried about our friends and fellow cruisers who are still in Mexico and wanting to head home to the USA and Canada. Many of the cruisers who were heading to Central America or French Polynesia did not go because of port closures so there are more boats needing marina slips or haul outs and storage spots for hurricane season.
So our journey home began on March 14 when we left La Paz. Because Loomba-Loomba was for sale we hung around at Marina Palmira most of the winter. We had a great time, but marina life isn’t normally what we like. Because of the Covid19 spread we figured there wouldn’t be too many people boat shopping so we decided to head further north, spend some time at the islands around Loreto and Puerto Escondido and then head over to San Carlos in May.…

La Paz: Winter 2019/2020

La Paz is a pretty special place.  Although we would prefer to be at anchor farther south this time of year where the water and air are both in the 80's, we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here so far. We were able to get in on some of the Christmas festivities before we headed home for Christmas. 

After Christmas we returned with terrible problema... a visit to a Consulto Medico and a Farmacia and we were on our way to recovery:

We are staying busy while we are waiting for the right person to come along to buy Loomba-Loomba.
The new malecón and bike paths are amazing. Most days we ride the six mile roundtrip from Marina Palmira toward Marina de La Paz doing errands along the way. Here are a few of the sculptures along malecón:
