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...

Wine Cooler Color, White Bird and It Pays to Wear Shoes That are Easily Recognized

Gee, I bet you are wondering what all those things have to do with each other.
Absolutely Nothing.
Jim has been enjoying some of my wine lately.
HEY ~ You don't see me enjoying his beer, now do you?
So last night he decided to drink a neon yellow Maracua Wine Cooler.


Sort of reminds me of what your urine sample would look like after drinking some of that stuff they give you before some of those medical scan tests.

He lived.

This morning I had another friend hang out on the dock next to us.
He was on the lookout for a fish breakfast.He found his breakfast near our starboard transom.Do you have time for a tangent?
Well, I do and it's my blog so I can do what I want.
Jim and I were watching birds fish the other day and I said something about how boring that would be to eat raw fish for your entire life.
To which Jim replied, "Well, we would get scurvy".
Then we wanted to know why birds and fish don't get scurvy.
Anyone know?

Ok, back to life in La Paz.
The younger girls off of "Don Quixote" recognized me from under the fort in the play area by my shoes.
My Croc flip flops.
So they yelled out and we talked for a bit.
They asked if I needed help getting my appetizer ready for the happy hour pot-luck today.
Well, sure I will always take help.
So Aeron (8 years) and Mera (10 years) came down, helped out and played on the computer a bit.
Then they wanted to do more.
Jim asked them if they wanted to varnish the entire inside of the boat.
So Mera washed my dishes and Aeron made my meatloaf for our dinner!I think I will wear my Croc "clogs" instead of my flip flops to the pot-luck and see if the girls recognize me...

I'm craving some Arbor Mist Blackberry Merlot, it's nothing more than Koolaid with a kick... but boy is it fun to chug. Refreshing.

I have a pair of crocs that look like mary janes. They are supper comfortable!! My flip flop ones for some reason cut up the inside of my toe. I want to get more crocs but I think I should pay bills first.

I'm no rocket surgeon but, here's a site that explains (I think) that Fish have vitamin C in them...

p.s. funny story: there were these college guys who went to the jersey shore for summer break a few years back and they just drank beer and ate guy food (cheetos and hotdogs) for like, weeks, anyway, they all started to get really sick, so much so that they had to take one guy to the hospital. The doctor diagnosed the one in the worst condition then decided to test all the guys... they all had SCURVY! The Dr. said that if they would have just had a lime in their corona's nobody would have been ill. So, always have a lime in your corona.

Hi Heather! Yes, I am alive...been super busy keeping the world safe from evil and Jim is welcome to plenty of beer! You can park the boat anywhere out here as soon as it rains enough! I think I will try my hand at winemaking as well as some mead in the next year. Hope you guys are well! Scotty
