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...

A Quick Glimpse of Halloween

I was pretty much running out of ideas to torment my co-worker Dan.
Did the Hartford Ag pig thing...
Dressed up as Dan the next year.
Had to do something boaty.
Already was a Titanic survivor.
Boaty, boaty, boaty, think.
Uh, what drives us crazy in the harbor these days?

The squid boats.
Lots of them.
Loud.
Making wakes.
Going over the 5 knot rule.
Law! Damn it, it's a law!
Deck lights blaring at 2 am.
Yes... on top of their running lights.
As they are motoring.
So not legal.
You can't tell which way they are going!
Save the squids!
Yes, I know the money they pay to the harbor pays for the dredging.
I know their boats stink to high heaven.
I know this is rated as a "commercial harbor".
But I also know deck lights confuse other boaters.
And there is that 5 knot / no wake rule.
Law! Damn it, it's a law!
So somehow I became a squid.
Just for one weekend.

For yesterday at work.



And tonight in the village.
If Jim lets me...
He is afraid the squidies will catch me with a big net!

LOVE IT! That's a great costume Heather!! We have a mermaid, a witch, and a vampire on board Totem. I am stocking the boats in the Santa Rosalia Singlar with candy, just in case. You're inspiring me to try and get my act together and dress up as something besides the (no costume required) frumpy cruising mom. I think I'm going to see if I can figure out an octopus. :-)

That is a fantastic costume! Did you make that? How fun!

I can think of at least a dozen cool (or digusting) jokes about your awesome squid costume. Therefore I won't cus it's just too easy. :)

You so need to use your picture as your Christmas card for this year!! I think that is the best costume ever!!

Jim and Heather on Meerkat said...

ADDU - did you get a package yet? Do they have mail delivery where you are at???

Behan - you could never be frumpy.

Jen - NO.

Yes I made it - that is what I like about Halloween - engineering my costume and it is engineering, believe me!

I'll be hitting the post office today to check the box, no worries.

good day people. I'm really into shoes and I had been searching for that particular make. The prices seeking the shoes were all over 340 dollars on every site. But definitively I set this site selling them as a remedy for half price. I absolutely love those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely buy these. what can you tell me about these?
