Sailing in the New Year


The weather has recently warmed up to more like what we remember from last season. It is so nice that we just couldn't stay at the dock, even with a ton of boat chores and school work hanging over us. So we slipped the lines and had a great sail up to Caleta Lobos, only about 5 miles outside the La Paz entrance channel. Amazingly, there are only 2 other boats here, despite the proximity to the big city, and the beautiful, tranquil surroundings. Even though the water has dropped to a chilly (at least by Mexican standards) 68F, I went in for a "polar bear swim." It was so good that Vicki and I are both going in again today. Happy New Year!
