Sailing in the company of four other boats was a fun experience, especially on the the challenging trip from Ensenada de los Muertos to La Paz

In La Paz!

Week of 12/09/13 - 12/16/13

Monday morning we finally made it to La Paz. We are now snugly settled in at the Marina Palmira for the next month while we try to finish some of the boat projects we didn’t have time for in Emeryville.

Time period: Thursday, 12/05 to Sunday, 12/08

Thursday evening we made it to Ensenada de los Muertos (Bay of the Dead and recently renamed to Bahia de Suenos – Bay of Dreams).  There is one restaurant here, a hotel, and a boat ramp where locals launch their pangas each morning.

Time period: Sunday, 12/01/13 - Thursday, 12/05/13

Last Sunday we left Cabo San Lucas for what we thought would be a 4 – 5 day passage to La Paz. However, we forgot to factor in that the weather doesn’t always cooperate with our boating plans.

Weeks of 10/14/13 - 10/25/13

Since we are still here in Emeryville, weeks past when we wanted to leave, we thought we’d blog a bit about why preparing a boat for an extended cruise takes so long.

Reflections on dentists visits in La Paz

At any time, a great white shark may have about 300 teeth in various stages of development within its jaw. Humans have only a maximum of 32, this can be a problem.
