Happy Saint Patrick's Day

A bunch of cruisers took a trip to a hot spring on the Moscota River, a short drive from the marina.  During the walk in we passed a field of 4 leaf clovers.  Not wanting to anger the Elf of Clovers, we did not pick or, God forbid, step on any.

We had to ride "Mexican style" the last couple of miles up the river in the back of a pick up, crossing the river several times.

The last couple of crossings were done on foot.

There were three pools between the spring and the river.  The first was quite warm, about 104 degrees, the next two were cooler.  People cycled thru them, or went direct from the hot pool to the river.

Our son Kevin passed on the hot tubs to take care of more important matters.

There have been races going on in the La Cruz area for the last couple of weeks involving all sizes of boats.  The largest raced down from San Diego.  The quickest was a trimaran that made it down in four days, averaging about 400 miles per day.

  1. Looks like a good time!
    BTW I believe that Tri was the boat from Waterworld.
