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

Hotel California

We are starting to think that we are meant to stay here for a while. We have checked out, paid the bill, said good bye no less than three times, and yet we never leave. Our last stop yesterday, before we were going to leave Puerto Escondido was to the hot dog stand for lunch. We were standing in line when I noticed the server looked a lot like our good friend Arlene. Gee, isn't that funny? There's no way it could be her - they aren't in Mexico. Patrick has known Ralph since he was eleven and Ralph and Arlene helped us bring our boat down to La Paz from CA (Ralph is a delivery captain.) And then she turned around. We couldn't believe it! They are here to pick up a boat and take it back to CA. So we stayed again. Jack is off at a kid's party right now. We think we may leave tomorrow, but we will see what happens..
