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

Yesterday, we went to a beach with our friends Ken and Kim, who are two American cruisers. They have a dog named Dale. Rudy and Dale came along too. I swam with needle fish and a bunch of other fish. My dad saw a stingray and he said, "Jack, there is a stingray." I swam with the stingray. Finally I did something Steve Irwin couldn't do - swim with a stingray safely. It was a a small guy, about the size of a plate. We ran the dogs so hard that Rudy was barfing.


Today we are heading off to a island group that is about three to four hours away. It is a marine preserve. We will only be out of the marina for a couple days. We have a reservation for the Thanksgiving dinner for 200 that the cruiser's group is throwing on Thursday, so we will be back for that.
