New Years Eve – Dec. 31, 2011

Bocci Ball with La Paz in the Background
 The weather was beautiful in La Paz, so we went across the bay to the Mogote with the crew of ‘Just a Minute’ for a game of Bocci Ball. Rudy had a great time running thru the water chasing anything that moved. By the time we got back to the boat we had 3 messages from family about Ricks Dad. It wasn’t good. He had been taken to the hospital by ambulance. Rick made plans to fly home Wednesday, Jan. 4.

Since there wasn’t any more we could do, we continued with our plans and went to the movies at the new theater in town. The theater is very nice! We watched the new Sherlock Holmes in English. On the way back to the marina we stopped at our favorite hotdog and hamburger place, Gina’s. We ate too much as usual. Patrick and Laura came to the boat for cocktails and Rummykub. A great way to bring in the New Year.

Waiting for the Movie to Begin

The next day, Rick’s Dad had gotten worse and the doctor said he wasn’t sure he’d make it until Rick arrived. We decided he would be there awhile, so Rick bought tickets for me and Gizmo. We all leave Wednesday. We have 2 days to get the boat ready to leave it for a while. We’ll have friends in the marina check on it while we are gone. Steve and Marsha are driving us to Cabo to catch our flight. We arrive in San Francisco about 7:30 pm and won’t get to Sacramento until 10:00 pm. Rick won’t see his Dad until Thursday.
