La Paz

On the morning of December 20th, after 5 days of relative solitude, we finally came into Internet range as we neared Isla Espiritu Santo. My email held the sad news that my mother had passed away 4 days earlier, on the 16th. This followed a long illness and a month in hospice care, so it was not unexpected. I made preparations for a quick trip back to the USA. Vicki had to stay with the boat, as we had guests coming the next day. Amazingly, I was able to book a flight on short notice, avoiding a 22-hour bus trip and cross-border connections. I flew "home" to Mexico on Christmas Day.
