On Sunday, Lupe and Jr of Moon and Stars..boat is now for sale...invited the crew of Capricorn Cat (along with 20 other friends) to their Ranchito in Bucerias. The place is under construction but you could barely notice since the focal points of gardens and pool gave a feeling of finished work. Lupe is the designer, architect and grand master of the complex...what an amazing, fun loving, take charge and vivacious woman. You can't help but have fun around her and JR too. Moon and Stars...next to us in La Cruz Marina. It is hard to miss this boat!
These photos will not show the true grandure of their new home and development but hopefully, you will use your imagination. Apparently, the first thing she built on the property was the pool, outdoor eating area and banos/showers. The pool is olympic size with a ramada in the middle.
Pool is always at 90 degrees...nice and comfortable so you can stay in all day!
Next thing she did was develop the many gardens so that by the time the house was built the place would be established and have a finished look. There are probably some 20 different garden area with walkways, sitting areas, lounging and eating places...Every where you look the eye is taken with a visual delight.

Gary and Lynn, our buddies from Brisbane, have been with us for the past week. They are great to have on the boat...they pitch in with boat chores, help the Capt with his list of never ending boat problems and Lynn helps with her creative cooking . They are easy guests to have on the boat as they go along with the "plan" that is always in flux.
We have seen quite a few whales on our sails around the bay...some close to the boat and others off in the distance. Last night we were anchored off the Marina in La Cruz and we heard the whales "talking". Apparently they are in the anchorage! Hope they don't become tangled in the anchor lines of all the boats!
We decided to give Capricorn Cat a new look... stripes on the hulls give us a sleeker look . New stack pack and our name on the pack...now everyone can see us....hope that is a good thing!
