The last passage really made us question how much we really want this life… is it worth ‘living the dream’ if it means periodically being so miserable that you’d happily trade in the boat for a nice solid trailer in someone’s backyard?? 😉
Happily, after 4 days of relaxing in a marina and solely focusing on enjoying the good parts of cruising, we’re back to loving life again 🙂 And just to prove it, I have photographic evidence 😀
We’ve been putting our new hard-bottomed dinghy to excellent use 🙂 And yes, we are those menaces you see ripping around the anchorage for no good reason!
This is the really cool estuary behind the marina here…
…Which includes this sweet island covered in big ole lizards like this guy!
The other good news is that THE BUTTER HAS MELTED and we are happily working on our tans once more 🙂
We’ve even been making the most of the funny little pool the marina has here…
As well as the “Old Town” part of Mazatlan (which is our favourite)
And the delicious “galleta” ice cream (cookie flavour)
We’ve also been buying more of the tropical fruits that are sooo good here (they’re drying on deck after Jon gave them their bleach-solution bath… to kill any cockroach eggs!
And we’ve been devouring said fruits for breakfast 😀
So all in all, I think we’re accepting the tough days with the good days… and learning how to make the most of the good ones!!
