Welcome to our mid-life crisis! These are the chronicles of Laura and Patrick, their young son Jack, and their goofball Labrador Retriever named Evinrude (Rudy), as they travelled the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific coast of mainland Mexico in their catamaran. We went cruising in search of a change of pace, a closer knit family, and peace of mind. We found all three and more. The fun all started in October, 2008 and nearly four years later the Mexican adventure came to an end August 3rd, 2012. With our mid-life crisis cured in Mexico, we are excited to start a new adventure - life back in America.

Patrick has since joined the Sales Team of Marine Servicenter as a boat broker. Whether you are looking to make your dream of sailing away come true, or ready to sell your boat he can help. He can be reached at http://marinesc.com/about/crew/patrick-harrigan

The journey begins....


I've been promising for some time to get a blog together, and finally, here it is. It has been one crazy journey just to get to this point and now the fun begins! A quick recap for those who are joining the fun late - We decided in March, 2008 that our life could suit us a little better if we made some simple changes. April 29th, the "For Sale" sign was posted in front of our home. By July 22nd, the house was sold and in the possession of the new owner. In August we purchased our new boat "Just a Minute" in California. I began homeschooling Jack in September (we love it!). Patrick worked his last day at his job of 19 years on October 1st. We left for CA on October 7th to begin outfitting the boat for our cruising adventure. Our plan is simple. We are just going to float around the Sea of Cortez and hang out together. We hope to be doing this for at least a couple years. If we get bored with the Sea, we will move through the Panama Canal. Or not. We really don't know. But when we do, we'll tell you about it. It's been one hectic six months, but soon it will all come together.

Fair Winds and Following Seas,
