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

The Best Guide Book Ever

We had the good fortune to meet Shawn and Heather, the authors of "The Sea Of Cortez" guidebook that was our bible last summer in the Sea. It was great to be able to tell them how much we appreciated the work they did producing the Sea of Cortez book. At first, Patrick did not buy it since it was "too pretty" to be useful, he was sure. He said it just looked like a really nice coffee table book. But finally he had heard too many people rave about it, and he broke down and purchased it in La Paz in November, 2008. Thank God he did because we never even cracked our other guide books open once we had it. It is filled with beautiful pictures, but also accurate way points, maps, descriptions of the anchorages and more.

So whether you are looking for a nice coffee table book to dream about the Sea, or you are planning to cruise in the Sea of Cortez sometime in the future, do yourself a favor and buy the book. And when the Riviera version comes out, I bet it is just as good. Their site is http://www.bluelatitudepress.com
