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

Leaving La Paz, Take 2

Well it's been about five or six weeks since the last time we tried to leave La Paz. We are hoping the second attempt goes better. We're busy this morning scrubbing the boat, putting things away and tying things down. Our next posting should come from Loreto in about a week or two if things go well. Until then, we're keeping our fingers crossed that the sail drive repair was good, and that Jack's knee continues to improve.


  1. What's funny is that they think they can outrun us...we will now have to track them down at the Islands North of La Paz when we leave Mazatlan this week.

  2. I'm convinced the only way to really leave LaPaz is to fly via airplane. And even then you find yourself back there!!!
