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

Seattle Field Trip

Jack, Patrick and Brett (owner) in front of the still at the Woodinville Whiskey Co. which specializes in creating hand-crafted, organic spirits.
We spent the day in Seattle, catching up with old friends, hitting a favorite eating spot and getting to the best boating supply store in Seattle. Our first stop was to catch up with Brett, a former co-worker of Patrick's who started up the Woodinville Whiskey Co. a year and a half ago. Brett and partner started the company after we had left the area for Mexico and this was our first glimpse. We were quite impressed when he showed us around the operation. Our trip home has had Patrick thinking about returning to work someday soon, and I think he was fantasizing about working for Brett! The company is growing quickly and already is sold in several states, and available online everywhere. You can find out more about them at http://woodinvillewhiskeyco.com/

The next stop was Pagliacci's for some of our favorite pizza. We have been talking about eating here for the last couple months. Yummm.

Enjoying the Capitol Hill Ambiance, Seattle

Fishery Supply Store - the Mecca for boaters. If they don't have it, it hasn't been invented. Before we left for Mexico the first time, we spent thousands of dollars here and hauled a truckload of items away. On this trip the bill was much less and it fit in one small bag - Progress!

Ahhh, Seattle. No wonder we love boating.
