Rock to the Dock

The Crew - John, Ron, Pat and Rick
Dec. 11, Rick crewed on Pat’s boat, Gitana, in his first race. The race was called ‘Rock to the Dock’. There were 4 guys aboard and they crossed the finish line first. They’re not sure if they won because of the handicaps??? But they were all very happy.

Putting the sails away

Back at Marina de La Paz

Dec. 6, We’re baaaacccckkk. This marina is so great for walking around town.  I think we spend more time walking than anything else. We’ll be staying here over the Christmas and New Years Holidays. Hopefully, we will get out to the islands for a few days for some swimming and beach time.

In and Around La Paz

Ana and Steve
We’ve been hanging out in La Paz. We’ve met a lot of great people and found a lot of great restaurants. Steve and Ana from Marina Village arrived Dec . 1 and we found them at their house, “Casa Ana”. The next day they took us and another friend, Crit, to the stores in their car. It was a long way out and I’m glad we didn’t have to walk!

The pool out to the beach
Dec. 3, we left Marina de La Paz for a week-end stay at Marina Costa Baja, my resort time! Yeah! Infinity pool, hot tub, spa. Living like the rich! I’m really enjoying the pool. The water is a bit cold, but after laying in the sun, it feels wonderful. We went out with Ron and Bette of ‘Wisp’ for cocktails and Jazz music at one of the bars. Spent too much, drank too much, but had a great time! The next day we took the shuttle back into town to Marina de La Paz to attend the Subasta.(An auction for the kids in La Paz).
