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

A few videos from the last month....

Here are a couple videos I took in the last few weeks. I had to wait until I had a strong internet signal to upload. Access to internet from the boat is very hard to find here on the Gold Coast. Many cruisers are now accessing internet through a device they buy which uses the cell phone signals, but it costs money to buy the device and then about $40 US per month for the service - too much for our budget! The more money we spend, the shorter time we get to cruise, and internet does not make the cut. So we struggle on. Hopefully, we will find internet in the Baja as good as we did last summer.

As you can see from these videos, I could never have been a professional videographer - but I try! One video is of the mother Spotted dolphin playing in front of our bow underway. The other video is a sideways view of Patrick as he is just finishing up from anchoring at Ipala during the squall. The sound you hear is the rain pounding down on the bimini.
