Cruiser skills: just hanging out
Our friend Mike showed up in La Paz at the end of the month, so we got to take a few days just chillin’ out on the boat. Mike’s considering a cruising sabbatical with his family, so we were non-stop systems chatting, pro/con boat selection, location analysis…pretty boring stuff for the non-sailor, but fun for us. And the scenery was pretty sweet.
At high tide, a dinghy can travel through the cut between Isla Espiritu Santo and Isla Partida; if the waves are chill, you can travel south to find some pretty cool sea caves. The timing of the tides meant an early departure from the boat, but we made our way out in ideal conditions to check out the caves.
Mike was officially our last visitor. From here, we head north to San Carlos, to sort out the details of storing and/or selling the boat, and the complex process of moving off.
