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

Back on the Baja

We've been back on the Baja (our favorite place) about three weeks now. It feels so great to be here. We have been filling our time with little projects and lots of goofing off. Once my sister's visit was over, we spent a few more days hanging around La Paz, and then decided that we needed to get the heck out of Dodge. We headed back out into the islands around La Paz, mostly lazing around but getting a few projects done. I spent two days re-stitching and repairing the dinghy chaps (the sunbrella cover that saves our Zodiac dinghy from sun damage and Rudy's claws). They were made for us two years ago in Mazatlan, and they were definitely showing their age. I have also been spending hours trying to learn everything to pass the upcoming Ham radio test that is scheduled for April 6th. For those of you hoping to cruise some day, I really encourage you to get your Ham License before you go. But that really is another blog for another day.
