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

Ben's Visit

We have been out of contact for the last few weeks mostly due to my clumsiness and plain bad luck. We left America with two computers, both laptops from Dell. In one week I managed to spill apple juice on one, and push the other off a bed causing it's screen to crack when it landed. Ouch! Major setback. The computer anointed with apple juice occasionally agrees to turn on and work, so we haphazardly have internet access. Since it decided to turn on today, I'll post a quick update so you know we are still having fun.

Our good friend Ben came down to visit us Tuesday the ninth. We back tracked south so we could pick him up in Bahia Concepcion. He flew into Loreto and took a bus that dropped him off at one of the beaches in Conception Bay. We picked him up and have been having fun ever since. We spent days touring our favorite places in Conception Bay, and then have been working north. He's been to Chivato, the Arches on Isla Santo Marcos and now Santa Rosalia. On Sunday Ben leaves and we will be sad to see him go.

So fear not, we are all great and having fun (except our computers.)
