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

On the Road Again

So, it has been one long, long time, but finally we are getting back to our life on our boat. It was great seeing everyone, but we are all so happy to be getting back! We ended up spending the entire month of July back in Western Washington, instead of the two to three weeks we were planning on. It gave us lots of time to see friends, spend waaaay too much money, and spend time with family. I even took in a class reunion! That was a trip.

Our trip down is going a little slower than the one up. Last night we stopped to see Ken and Kim from Summerwings in their new home in California. It was so great to see them again. Their new home is lovely. Their boat is still available for sale in La Paz and can be viewed at http://home.mindspring.com/~kkcordes/id22.html. Currently we are about 100 miles north of Los Angeles and have plans to see Bill and Sue from Sunbaby tomorrow. They are enjoying their new granddaughter.

We plan to be back in Santa Rosalia in about three days. And then the work begins! Back up the mast to replace the parts we took down, new solar panel to be installed, boat cushions to be sewed. We hope to be out of there as fast as possible, but it will probably take four or more days.
