San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico


We are about ready to head across to Baja
 - now we're waiting for a weather window.
We spent about a week at Hotel Los Jitos
while we worked on Loomba-Loomba.
We've been at the dock since we launched
on October 23rd. 
The biggest glich this year was a worn
out starter motor. We had to order one,
have it sent to Drew in Phoenix, and then
drive up to get it. It's now installed and
working!
Here are a few pictures of our time
in San Carlos (which included a couple of 
trips to Guaymas).
Nice view from the work yard
View from the cockpit in the workyard
Prop work done and bottom painted.
Ready to Splash!
Almost floating.......
A Saguaro cactus growing on a roof!
These are VERY slow growing so this must have started
years ago. There are also a bunch of baby saguaro
that you can't see in this picture. The conditions
on this roof must be ideal for the Saguaro:)
Getting our propane bottles filled at a drive up propane station
in Guaymas
Two of the "lovely" Christmas displays
available for purchase at Home Depot
in Guaymas
Lunch stop at Pescaditos for Chile Relleno/Marlin/Shrimp Tacos
I just got the Chile Relleno/Shrimp Taco (no Marlin)
Yummy!
Ley's is one of the big grocery stores in Mexico.
This Ley's car was parked right outside of Walmart.
Were they shopping??????
