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...

"God's Grace", "God's Grace" This is "Thistle" "Meerkat"!

It is so amazing to re-connect with cruising friends from "the old days"!
It is like no time has passed.
Except their kids have grown up taller.
The conversations are picked up right where they were left.

Well, thanks to facebook, we found the boys from "God's Grace"!
And once we found the boys, we found the mommy and daddy!

And as our luck would have it, they were having a pool party & BBQ yesterday.
I guess they figured cruising friends wouldn't embarrass them too much, as we were invited.
And the last to leave...

First let's see what we looked like way back then.
The little boys, Rudy and Ryan, who were 10 and 13 at the time.
And sandy.All of us.
So young…And now!
Not so young…But still fun!
And better guitarists.
And taller but not me.

A wonderful story. Great pics, too.
So are you guys gonna be based in San Diego? Cos depending on what decision I end up making, I might have to come there to look for some used boat parts, like a couple of winches.

Eventually we will be back in the Ventura / Channel Islands area - in early October. Right now we are just hopping around SoCal with no place to go...

I am not that short. They are just tall boys!
