Our time is La Paz is ending. Our new four year visas are in our hands! We did get one short three-day voyage out to the islands at the start of this new 2022-23 season. And we did get to experience anchoring in the Mogote. But now it’s time to start on our new season’sContinue reading “And away we go!”
We enjoyed a couple days of slip rental in Marina de La Paz. We de-salted our boat toys, washed the boat, provisioned and took on water. We are ready to head the 250nm to Mazatlan once we get our visas. Hopefully the visas will be available sooner than later this week, but it’s already TuesdayContinue reading “On the (tiny) move”
We are anchored in a place known as the Mogote anchorage. The official Mogote is actually a sandy spit of land north of La Paz that forms the north shore of the bay. Our boat location is the black boat shape in the channel right of the spit of land. A challenge here is thatContinue reading “Anchored in the Mogote”
We found the setting on our blog to not require logging in to make a comment on our posts. I know it’s inconvenient to have to log in. Hopefully more comments since this setting has been changed. Please still put in a name so we know who commented. We do still get to moderate soContinue reading “Login not required to comment!”
Trip number two to Instituto Nacional de Migracion for photos and fingerprints. It was supposed to be a couple days after filling the original paperwork. It took a bit longer but there was probably some Revolution Day impact on the processing schedule. I guess the resident cards will show up a few days after printsContinue reading “Migracion, II”
Our potentially last ever time in islands of the Sea of Cortez was shared with my brother Ken down from Seattle. Definately sharply dressed for a traveller new to the tropics. Our new crew had arrived! We took in a few activities while wandering around town. Food of course. Introduction to Molcajete. Fine beers veryContinue reading “The old man and the sea”
On rare occasion we have breakfast out. Almost always we’ll rewarded for that decision. Major que mi Madre hizo!
It’s Revolution Day weekend. More amazing stuff going on. We went out for ribs at the best rib joint in La Paz and happened upon yet another event. This was opening night – a folkloric festival – on the steps of a church in el Centro. Who knows what we’ll run into next?
Our adventures and opportunities in Mexico are so varied, and almost always rewarding. The local Rotary has lots of programs to help members of the local rural communities here in BCS. Rotarians here in the boating community run a Christmas gifting program. They have a list of about 100 kids who live in very ruralContinue reading “Santa Claus”
We are working on getting resident visas. There’s a program that if you (1) are in Mexico on an expired visa, (2) visited Mexico at least once before 2020, (3) have money to pay fines for expired visas and fees for the “regularization” program, (4) have more money to prepay four years of temporary residencyContinue reading “Migracion!”
