La Paz January 2014

We've been here for 10 days and we are leaving this morning to head down to Los Muertos and then across the Sea to Mantanchen Bay (San Blas).  We will work our way down to La Cruz by February 14th or so.
While we were here we both had dental work done, got some canvas work done, provisioned, filled the water tanks and fuel tanks, and cleaned the boat inside and out. We also rode our bikes all over town, ate at some of our favorite La Paz restaurants, and re-connected with some cruising friends.

We started another blog which we can post to from the SSB radio. It has much better tracking than this one. There is a link to it at the top right hand side of this page. We will continue to use this blogspot blog when we have wifi and can post pictures.

Christmas in the Northwest


Pacific Place in downtown Seattle
Santa's arrival and inside snow flurry.


Making the traditional Christmas stocking for Simon.
Most of the cousins, spouses, and the next generation:
Willy, Charlie, Reinier, Amy, RL, Kelsey, Simon, Montira, and Drew.
Katie, Eric and Piper (born 10 days before Simon)and Rick are missing.
We had a little bit of every type of weather.
This day we went for a COLD, but beautiful, walk
in the park across the road from our house.

Battle Point Park, Bainbridge Island, WA.


We are scheduled to return to La Paz on January 21, 2014.
It was A VERY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS.
We shall miss family, friends and especially Simon!
