Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Nope, It's Not Fall Yet... Still Waiting...

Fooled us.
We do have afternoon breeze today though, but it was dead calm last night.
Not a ripple in the water.
Looked like glass.

And we have two, not one, but TWO dead air conditioners...











Still waiting for that motor to be re-built.
Manana Man: "Come by Saturday at 1:00 pm and I will have it ready".
So go by Saturday at 1:00 pm.
Manana Man's wife: "Manana Man's not here. Come back Monday".

Oh and it got warm again...The 96 degrees is inside the boat.
Yeehaw.
Guess we will dinghy over to The Mogote for a float swim this afternoon.

Ha ha. That's what I'd do everyday. Wake up, point at my temp guage thingy, think, 'cor it's hot' and then go have a swim/marg/relax for the rest of the season.
Heheheheehe.

It's cooled down here. It's lovely today. There's a cool breeze. It's sooo refreshing.

It was 90 degrees inside the boat around 8:30 pm. No breeze. Watching a movie, drinking vino tinto. Jim lying on cabin sole in front of fan - moves outside when I tell him breeze came up. Now it's just before 9 pm, and it's a cool 88 degrees inside the boat. Jim now lying in cockpit. Yep - it's not fall. Still summer...

Has anyone noticed the dead face I put on the stand-up air conditioner?

Jomamma said...

I just thought that was the way they look in Mexico.

Snort. Uh, well, I'm uh, well, blogging again. Prolifically.
Didn't last long, did it!
Hahhhahahahahhaaha.
Such a bloomin' drama queen!

Jomamma - that is just how everything looks once you get it to Mexico. Dead, dying, broken.

Hail to the Drama Queen!
