Scheduling Issues

It looks like we were just a bit too late in putting together a charter in the Sea of Cortez for this winter. Coordinating vacation schedules on short notice was getting way too complicated, so I'm going to cancel the March charter for this year.

We may do it next year though. Some people are interested in the same kind of trip if we can do the planning with more advance notice and flexibility in the time frame. Over the next few months we may be able to put together a package that's more accomodating than this one was, so I'll keep this blog updated on whatever comes out of that effort.

In the meantime, Sea Story is spending most of the holiday in Marina Palmira on the north side of La paz. The weather is wonderful, and I'm planning to spend a few days out in the islands between Christmas and New Years. The rest of the time, it will be dock parties and holiday festivities in the easy comraderie of the many American and Canadian cruisers who enjoy this place as much as I do.

Marina Palmira is Sea Story's home for this winter. It connects to La paz by a divided highway and the Malecon, a wide walk-way that serves as a popular exercise route and meeting place for locals and visitors alike. The boats in the distance are anchored in front of Marina La paz.
