Living Life in La Paz

|

Our time in La Paz has been pretty uninspiring…I guess that’s why it’s taken me so long to write anything about it! Life here wasn’t much different than life in San Diego: boat projects, grocery shopping, a few hangouts with friends. The difference was that instead of being at a dock we were in a very crazy anchorage where boats swing wherever they want to, we get to shore with wet butts from the dinghy ride, and we have to walk everywhere instead of driving.

La Paz is a great town with a huge cruiser community. We usually started our day by riding the dinghy into Marina de La Paz where we could use the dinghy dock for a small fee. Then we’d head over to the cruisers club where they had a coffee hour. There is a great little playground there that Sully would play at while we drank coffee and visited with friends and other cruisers. Then we’d walk to whatever errand we were running that day – the grocery store, public market or hardware store. Or we would just go to the big park on the malecon and let Sully play some more. I’ll just let pictures tell the story this time…

We are finally getting ready to leave La Paz after spending two and a half weeks here. It’s been fun, but we are excited to head up to Isla Espiritu Santo for swimming, snorkeling and hiking in crystal clear water surrounded by beautiful scenery.
