- Kimi: lol
Right after the Dinkins family left we had a day 1/2 to get the boat ready for Hannah and Dave to come aboard for a VERY short trip. We of course talked them into bringing some supplies to us from the states….they got the green light and did not have to be inspected (thank goodness).
We of course had to have an adult beverage before we headed out to dinner at the Marina and we topped it off with a drink at the top of the lighthouse.
The next morning we left the PV marina and traveled about 8 miles to Los Arcos. We all got into the water, had lunch and after we had a nice sail to La Cruz and saw lots of whale display. Dave informed me that these displays, fin slapping and breaching at this time of year-it’s breeding season, the males are “fighting” for the female. She is setting the pace and the males are following trying to out do the other males. WOW..never knew and thanks to Dave I will never see the whales the same : )
That evening we headed out to see the town of La Cruz and for dinner…. tacos at our favorite place, “Red chairs / Brown chairs” as the local cruisers call it. Cheap tacos and bring your own beer…what else do you need?
The next day we went to the Sunday market and did some shopping and munching. We headed back to the back and just had a lazy day. Dinner was on the boat after second HH of Guacamole and chips (first HH was fresh cheese and chimichurri with bread from the market). Let’s just say we had 3 empty bottles of liquor at the end of the night.
On their last day of their visit Hannah and Dave helped us move “Flo” to the service dock in the morning. We needed to move so that we could get some stainless steel work done the next day. We headed out for lunch before we caught a cab. Trevor and I were off to a Pacific Puddle Jump send off party at Vallarta Yacht club and Hannah and Dave off to the airport.
Thank you Hannah and Dave for coming down South and those who took care of the kiddos to allow them to come to visit. We so enjoyed our time with you both….it was so great to have both of your perspectives for Trevor and I!!! We love you!
