What Are We Doing?

I can't really talk in depth about it yet. The Captain says we're going back to the Sea of Cortez for one last season instead of heading to southern Mexico, Guatemala - Oaxaca, Palenque Ruins,  Spanish immersion classes, Chiapas, Huatulco, Antigua...
all must wait.

The negative:
  • I didn't have anything to say about his decision. He sprung it on me MONTHS after we agreed to go south - then pulled anchor one hour later and headed north. Hell-o!

The positive:
  • We'll be with dear friends - new ones and well loved ones.
  • We'll be in warm, crystal clear blue waters.
  • There's no surf to make watery dinghy landings.
  • Fishing is excellent.
  • High speed internet is abundant.
  • Boat parts will be readily available.
  • Most importantly, we're coming up with a "plan" as to where we will go next year... in writing... with Jim's signature... with penalties.

    Okay, so there are many more positives than negatives. We plan to be at Loretofest In Escondido late April. Santa Rosalia friends are high on our list. New school curriculum needs to be purchased for the kids. Visits with Grandpa are in the future. I am flexible; I am Gumby .

As a friend told me once, there are more important things in the world than where you're going to park your boat for the summer.


  1. Meri,

    Just remember, the Captain is always right! And the beatings will continue until morale improves! :-)

    Anyway, I am curious about your comments concerning the Sea of Cortez...boat parts are abundant? (imoportant to old TOCK owners like me)...internet access is abundant? Can you write me about this a little? These are important things to me...

  2. I would like to be the first one to welcome you back, Jesse

  3. Well all right then! I guess we will see you guys in the Sea. I can't tell you how happy I am for a chance to redeem myself from the last five Scrabble games. I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog, too! (remember the Wiz of Oz?)

  4. Here is one person that is happy with the news that you are returning to the "sea"
