We have finally departed La Paz, and come north to Isla Partida. For the last five days, we have had strong northerly winds, and beautiful clear skies, making our anchorage and hiking in the nearby canyon relatively cool and comfortable. The slopes of the mountains are so remarkably green, something we could never have imagined. We've seen dozens of flowers new to us.
During October, we had a stainless steel arch constructed and mounted on Indigo's stern. It supports three solar panels, and allows us to raise and stow the dingy - motor attached - out of the water. We also had a small freezer installed. With those improvements, life onboard seems luxurious. Ice for gin and tonics!

Ah, how climate change or is it weather changes the world. “Cool and comfortable.” A far cry from old PDX.

The mechanical advantages of technology are the thing of old age pleasure. I could have never conceived of a G’nT without ice. You all have had some unique experiences!

Oh, and BTW, tell the Captain to look before he leans his butt into the landscape. A scorpion sting there would bedevil him for weeks!

Happy sailing.
