Mazatlan anchorage

Picture of our anchorage in Mazatlan....middle island. Another sunny, warm day in the town that was "officially " founded in 1591 by Nuno de Guzman....not to mention the natives that had lived here in pre-Hispanic times.
We are off to Old Town in a few hours...before the heat and humidity become unbearable.

Cap Cat on the Baja Ha Ha

Lost my camera....water....lost pictures......bottom of the Ocean.....But this is Cap Cat with crew having a blast on the Ha Ha. Katie, John, Hailey, Wayne and Carol.....San Diego to Cabo with stops in between at Turtle Bay,
Santa Maria and finally, Cabo. Warm and sunny here ....88 degrees, water temp 81 and rising. Bob and Dorene are with us again for the trip to Mazatlan, Isla Isabela, Chacala, Punta Mita and La Cruz. More pictures to follow.....hopefully.

Best crew ever....they're ours !

Bob is still smiling after spending 3 weeks with us and helping the Capt with greasy grimy messy boat projects~~~ Dorene is still smiling after spending 3 weeks with us and helping me cook, clean and keep our guys happy~~~~
Is it the wine? good company? they are on a Catamaran? maybe because they are not on their boat so they don't have to think about their bottom paint, inverters, rudder, pumps and rigging. Whatever it is, we were glad to have them aboard and are sad that they had to leave to go back home to work on their rentals. Good news is that they will be joining us again from Cabo to PV. I'm sure the Capt can find some more projects for Bob and Dorene and I can start cooking up exotic dishes again.

Once again working on the boat

Wayne and Brad work on the sail drives....they love it Cap Cat on the hard.....3rd time in less than 12 months....we get a medal for that???

A day in Avalon

We took a walk up into the hills in search of Zane Grey's home and found this lovely view...Cap Cat is down there somewhere..we did find his house but it smelled like he was buried there...nice view though Of course there are the NO signs...we ignored them...
The Jazz festival was going on and we found this Jazzy pelican on one of the side man!
