It was a glorious trip, perfect in all ways except for the unending boat issues. But dealing our boat issues is the cost of admission, and can be part of the fun, when they don't crush ones spirit, suck the joy of life out of one, or make one(me) feel like the end of our cruise is at hand because of ignorance and lack of common sense.
But, soul wrenching ennui aside, we love being here in this part of Mexico. It is a little slice of heaven, with sweet gentle people, magnificant scenery and warm waters teeming with sea life. This 300 mile stretch has got to be one of the best cruising areas in the world.

We were joined in Puerto Escondido by our friends Andrew and Anne on Windsong who are sharing thier summer cruise with thier lucky grandsons Nic and Greg. They were great company and worthy Farkle opponents. Windsong left Saturday for the States via San Carlos to take the boys home. We were sorry to see them leave, and hope to reconnect with Anne and Andrew and possibly Nic again this fall.

We are waiting in Santa Rosalia for a "Care Package" of parts that I will use, hopefully, to repair our water maker, gen-set, and alternator. (see "ennui" above)
