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

More Pics from the last few weeks

"I'm Living the Dukes of Hazard!"

this was Jack's war cry after his driving lessons in Escondido. Do you remember how excited you were to learn to drive? With that attitude, you can see why I was screaming in the back while he was driving. He actually wanted to do donuts in the parking lot! And there is just something so very wrong about putting volvo station wagons and the Dukes of Hazard together.

Rudy and Laura

Jack and Zada

We believe they are the only two kids in the N. Sea of C this year.

The Cruiser's Shrine at San Juanico -

it was fun to walk around and read the names of friends from years past.

This was Jack's offering from two years ago. It's hard to read in the sunlight,
but it says SV JAM Jack and Rudy. Patrick and I are only the hired help.

Proof that Jack had a happy childhood - see the smile?

Walking San Juanico's beach with Eyoni

Bad Camera Karma (what did I do to deserve this?) plagues us, leaving us with over $500 USD of two broken cameras, neither of which is over a year old. Oh, how painful. Thankfully we ran into Eyoni and Nancy shared some pics, as mentioned above. Since these will be the last pictures you all will see from us before we return from the States, I thought I would post a few more.

Once we finish our chores and leave Santa Rosalia in a couple days, you will probably not be hearing much from us for about a month. There is very little internet available north from here, and our sail mail is not working so we can't post through our SSB radio.
