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 Mexican Riviera

The lagoon waterfront in Barra de Navidad

I love this butcher shop's logo.

At the beach in Cuastecomate, JaM is anchored in the background.

Coming straight from La Paz where it's cold (50's at sunrise), windy and semi-desert, and moving 400+ miles south to Chamela sure highlights the difference between the Baja and the mainland. Here on the mainland, it's warm (80+ at sunrise), with very gentle breezes, and lush jungle. It's simply wonderful. The other big difference is the proliferation of people, resorts, hotels, and restaurants that line all the anchorages on the mainland.
