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

Time to Go....

We are back in La Bay village for the last day. As you know, Hurricane Rick came no where near us. After building quickly, it also started petering out quickly. Windfall and Third Day did not even leave the LA Bay area, and we took advantage of the southerly winds to head to Refugio for one last visit.

Our time in Refugio was well worth the effort of getting there. Patrick and Jack went snorkeling with the sea lion pups at the colony up there. Patrick speared his first fish there, and we enjoyed days of beautiful weather. Also up at Refugio with us were three boats with fine musicians on board and we enjoyed a fantastic live concert on the beach one night with a mandolin, banjo and harmonica. It was a very memorable evening.

Now we are back in LA Bay for the last time this summer and looking to do a small sail slightly south today. We are planning to be on a slow boat to Santa Rosalia, which will be our first stop with Internet. so look for more posts in about two weeks. Windfall and Third Day are leaving with us and I believe we are the last three who are left in the area, so we will be turning out the lights and locking the door. I am sad to leave but what a summer we had!
