La Paz - Marina de La Paz Nov. 17-21, 2010

Wednesday morning we left Muertos for La Paz. We are staying at the marina in the center of town, Marina de La Paz. That night we went to Dragons Toy for dinner and then into town to an awards ceremony for a sailing race at a bar called Papaguyo Mariner (Mariner Parrot). They have the best band with a girl singer that sounds like Janice Joplin. We will be going back to listen to them.

We walked all over town, this should get me in shape! We found the marine stores, hardware stores, grocery stores, fishing stores and everything else. We ordered 20 lbs of diving weights and a small 50cc diving tank to be picked up on Saturday. More walking!

Thursday afternoon was the Baja Ha Ha welcome to La Paz party at Papas and Beer. Free tacos and beer, Mariachi band, little kids dancing and a cruisers band. They also had a raffle with a lots of prizes. We ended up with a free weeks stay at the nicest marina in La Paz, Costa Baha. We will use it soon. It was a great party.

The Baha 1000 race ended in La Paz this year on Saturday. The town was full of motorcycles, 4X4’s cars and trucks that ran the race. They gathered on the Malecon and closed off some streets. There was also a parade and celebration for a Mexican Revolution on Saturday. La Paz was busy! Sunday we are heading out to the islands for a couple of days.
