Hop on the bus, Gus


Bus 1

We've stored our car in Ensenada, finished all critical boat projects, and bought enough provisions to last through the apocalypse (not that we think that’s going to happen) so it's time to cut the lines and leave La Paz.  After too many months in the marina to admit, we're going to spend a couple of months in the Sea of Cortes before heading up the outside of Baja to Ensenada for the summer. La Paz has been fun but our feet have sunk too far into the sand and it's time to move on. We are happiest when moving.

Plans to Move on and Carnival

It's time to move on. Life in La Paz has been wonderful but we're happier when we're moving around a little. March will be our last month here.

Next month we'll take the boat north into the sea for 6 weeks and then return to La Paz for a quick stop before heading around and up the outside of Baja to Ensenada where we'll spend next summer. We may not get back to the Sea again and we want to spend some time at some of the beautiful anchorages before we leave.  2 years ago we went back to Ensenada for the summer and had a cool but nice time and got a lot of boat projects done with San Diego just a couple hours drive.

Carnival was in February and we had a great time going to the parade on two nights and once just to the carnival.  The Mexicans sure do enjoy their festivals and they know how to have fun with the whole family. It seemed that the entire town was lining the parade route and half of the people were kids under 15 years old.
Here's some pictures.
