2016 Mexico

2016 MAY – THERE IS A SEASON….

2016 MAY – THERE IS A SEASON….

  THERE IS A SEASON…! To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven:   Ecclesiastes 3:1   As another Mexican summer approaches it is time to leave the boat and bolt for gentler climes!  It gets to 105° in Mexico, in the shade on a cool day, and that’s just […]


2016 MAR – MY MIRACLE

2016 MAR – MY MIRACLE

  The Lord works in mysterious ways! My youngest son and I have been at odds and have not really communicated for nearly 5 years. Consequently my three granddaughters have become strangers to me over the years. Then 2 years ago I set out on this sailing odyssey. By this time I expected to be […]


2016 JAN – NYE

2016 JAN – NYE

2016 New Year’s Eve I have been so focused these past few weeks on getting the boat up and running again that I didn’t even notice Xmas come and go. It is all just time slowly passing….. And I have been here long enough so that my body clock is now in sync with the […]


2015 NOV – HURRICANE SANDRA

2015 NOV – HURRICANE SANDRA

  Wed November 25th Hurricane Sandra Wednesday at 2:00pm I have been monitoring Tropical Storm Sandra coming up the Mexican coast for the last 2 or 3 days. Sandra is expected to harden into the Cat 3 hurricane today. I have been hoping that the hurricane would track west and head out to sea, and […]


2015 NOV – BEES & IGUANAS

2015 NOV – BEES & IGUANAS

    La Cruz marina has a bee swarm problem this winter. Over the summer the bees found comfy nests inside sails and sail covers and moved onto the boats with a vengeance. This has been an unpleasant surprise for boaters returning to their boats after the summer away. So far I seem to have […]


2015 NOV – DAY of the DEAD

2015 NOV – DAY of the DEAD

Day of the Dead This is a very sacred day in Mexico. If you don’t understand the significance of this event, then it appears macabre, chilling, quite bizarre – with an unhealthy focus on skulls and skeletons. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Day of the Dead is to honor and remember those loved […]


2015 OCT – HURRICANE PATRICIA

2015 OCT – HURRICANE PATRICIA

Friday 10/23/2015 This is turning out to be some homecoming…! I only just arrived back on Tuesday and 2 days later Hurricane Patricia is on her way. She came out of nowhere!   I check passageweather.com all the time and on Monday there was no hint that a huge storm was brewing. Friday I was […]


2015 OCT – I’M BACK !

2015 OCT – I’M BACK !

Tuesday 10/20/2015 It has been a wonderful summer break in California with my son and his delightful family. While I was there Kevin and I worked on his smartphone app that is unique. There is no other app on the market like it. He had secured $250,000 funding for it and we did the Technical […]
