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...

La Paz to El Candelero

Up at sunrise ~ yipee, we are getting out of the marina!
Finished getting the boat ready and headed over to the fuel dock.
Jim did a great job backing in and then getting out of the tight spot.
Had to do a 180 getting out of there (love how catamarans turn in tight spots!).

Fished back and forth across the bay.
No keeper fish though.
Just skipjacks.
Jim is still The Skipjack King!

And in to the anchorage!Aaaaahhhhhh - the clear turquoise water!The white sand beaches!
The lack of boats!
The lack of buildings (but they do have camping tents out here now...)!

Immediately in to the water!

This is pretty
much how I
spent the


We floated. Swam under the boat. Got out & read. In and under the boat again. Floated. Watched a mega yacht come in and anchor behind us. Then watched them leave. Floated. Read. Under the boat. Glass of wine. Swam around in circles. Listened to music while we floated. Read. Wine. Floated. Fresh water rinse.

Watched big thunderheads form over the mountains.Watched them form into huge clouds that looked like something a tornado would come from.Beautiful!

Made burritos for dinner.
Sat on the bow and watched the rest of the sunset.
Watched the stars come out.Saw three satellites!

Hot, sticky.
Curled up (separately of course) in the cockpit and hoped for some breeze.
Tried to sleep.
I finally went inside and crawled up next to a fan.
Jim came inside around 1 am.
Hot, sticky.
