We are happy to leave the dock...new neighbors just moved in and they have 5 parrots in a cage sitting on the dock ...wish you could hear them...squack, squwack, screech! I love the sound in the wild but not next to me all day long! Plus, we no longer have a view of anything except the side of their boat.
What we will miss are our good Catamaran buddies, Heather and Jim on Meerkat. We have had many good times with them these past 6 weeks...at least we know that we will see them again when we come back to town in a few months. Thanks Heather and Jim for all your help and laughter!

Last night was game night on Cap Cat so some friends came over to play Apples to Apples. If you never played this game before, I suggest going out and buying it. All we did is laugh till our sides ached! Thank you Heather and Jim and Marcos for the good time. Did I mention you had to wear a mask to play?

This is the Capt's body in La Paz during the summer...sudor, sudor y mas sudor....(sweat)
We are back in La Paz for a few days...as I type, Danny is making our new shade screen for the cockpit. It blocks out some 75% of the sun but lets the breeze flow through. This is something we have been wanting for a long time...what the heck were we waiting for?

Sunday morning at 11 am we finally pulled out of the Marina. Four hours later we are anchored at Ensenada Grande. We are in paradise...air temp..85 degrees, water temp 85 degrees, light breeze, sunny and we had the place to ourselves...for a few days.
While snorkling one day we came across some spotted porcupinefish and a bunch of Italians on vacation. Wayne amused the kids with the blown up fish. The kids and parents were both in awe of the pokie fish and Wayne in his blue suit!
We managed to wake up eary one morning..early meaning before the sun was blasting down on us...to take a hike up a ravine. It looked easy enough from down below but it turned out to be quite the opposite! Grand views from 1/3 the way up the mountain...no way were we going any higher!

W assures me that we are going to leave the Marina today for a few days and go up to Blandra. Here is a picture of the famous El Hongo, mushroom rock, in the cove. We had a rolly polly night there a few days ago so we just might end up going to Caleta Lobos, the anchorage before Blandra.
