In San Diego we purchased a couple folding bikes from a guy we on the local VHF net. They're small and red and look like clown bikes. After cramming them on the boat for more than a month, we're finally getting our money's worth: we ride them everywhere. Kathi got a couple colorful plastic baskets for groceries. A couple days ago she got two flat tires while on the way home from the grocery store. Fortunately, Marina Palmira has a shuttle that was on its way back to the marina about that time. It was her first ride in a car since October 25th in San Diego!
Bill's gotten frisky and has been trying to do wheelies!
Isla Espiritu Santo , 2 Deciembre
We finally busted out of La Paz for a few days, and a had a very quiet and peaceful visit in Bahia San Gabriel at the south end of the island. Moreover, we even had breeze to sail up and back. We used the opportunity to test Bill's modifications to the Sailomat windvane. (Mods were successful.) Anyway, without a good dinghy, we didn't even try to go ashore, so the visit was peaceful to the point of being dull. I guess we missed the "big city" of La Paz.
