We arrived back in La Paz yesterday after a fast and furious motor/sail down. Traveling down past all the amazing places on the Baja peninsula, it became clear that we still had so much left to see. We could spend another entire season in the Sea and not revisit one anchorage!
La Paz is a main cruiser's hub of Mexico and it is full to the brim with the cruiser's who have been here forever living on boats, the Baja HaHa 09 participants who are mostly newcomers and who just got down here from the States in early November, and the people like us who are moving south after spending the summer up in the Sea. It is quite a circus. The five marinas in town are all pretty full and the anchorage in the bay is filled with about another 60 to 80 boats. We could not find a spot in a marina since out 22 foot wide boat only fits in a few spots in each marina and they were all taken. That is one disadvantage of a catamaran. We are anchored in the bay of La Paz next to Third Day and Windfall. Our reservations are set to attend the upcoming Thanksgiving dinner put on by the Club Cruceros Cruiser's association. And we are working to secure reservations to haul the boat out on Tuesday.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone,
