|Neil donned his scuba gear to check his anchor|
setting on La Bohem. So he took a
look and thought he found an
additional anchor that had been abandoned.
Well it turned into a f aux salvage
operation. It was an anchor but a
very old and very rusted one. Too
bad but the exercise was fun.

mangroves at Amortahada. We also
anchored off the mangroves, Never
again. Those no see um bites
lasted 2-3 weeks and left
scars!! After about a week of
lounging, fishing, eating, swimming,
playing games and generally
relaxing La Bohem departed east
across the Sea of Cortez to Mazatlan
and south. They were headed
through the Panama Canal to the
East Coast for Marion's Dad's

after the shock of one minute
being surrounded by great folks to
being totally alone on a beautiful
white sandy beach I adapted. It is
the way of cruising. The Hello's
are GREAT the GOODBYE'S
are hard. However it is amazing
how paths continue to cross
months even years later. That is the
one of the good parts.
I moved around to the front side of the Island for protection from the
North wind and stayed a
couple of days. Then one morning
I decided it was time to head
back and fix the boat.
I got up very early in
anticipation of arriving
in La Paz before dark.
The sunrise was beautiful
and it was such a peaceful
feeling being out there.

bit of the way and as I was
nearing San Gabriel Bay
I heard a familiar voice
on the radio and was invited
to stop and hang with
Julie and Bill on Voyager
and Dale and Dena on
Double Dharma. We wound
up staying a couple of days.
It was fun because one
could be out at the Islands
yet still get the internet!!
I had some parts that I
desperately needed to get
ordered and I hadn't talked
to anyone for almost 2 weeks
so it was fun!

Back to La Paz. They say there
is a giant bungee cord that
attaches itself to your boat once
you have visited and it always
pulls you back. I am beginning
to think that it is TRUE!!!
