Wow, was it ever a great feeling to be back aboard Bravo, back to our more relaxed pace of travel at say 7 miles per hour than trying to pass semi's in a hail of gravel at 70. We got all of the new gear stowed and headed south, backtracking much of our route of earlier in the year. We did have some new anchorages to explore, and the really great thing was that the temps have now dropped to allow happy hiking. And the hiking opportunities on the Baja and the islands are fantastic.
But every silver lining has a cloud, or some other cliche oughta fit here... As we got closer to La Paz, the anchorages were no longer our own. We were now sharing them with not just other cruisers, as had been the case in the northern Sea this summer, but also with a multitude of mega power yachts based in La Paz. And with them come their toys.....spelled J-E-T S-K-I-I-S....Man we hate those suckers, as they seem to love to use Bravo as their turning mark of their course. Ahhhh....civilization.....
Except for our reentry issues, though, these past few weeks have really been fun and active. Since we've been unable to post any photos without internet, we'll include a few here of some recent exploits. Unfortunately our MacBook has died an ugly graphics card death, so we don't have access to most of our photos until our return to the US later this month.

Here's our Mexican "courtesy flag" as we reenter La Paz...already have a crisp new one flying!! I wonder if our flag was the reason Bravo was boarded 6 times this summer by the Mexican navy???? Do ya think?????
That's all for now. Hopefully will have more photos after we get our Mac repaired... (fingers crossed!!!)
We'll be heading back to the US tomorrow, flying out of La Paz, and will be back in early December. More boat projects ahead, as we will haul out of the water for bottom painting, and a rather lengthy list of other boat jobs. Will likely be in La Paz until after New Years, when it will be time to set sail for Central and South America.
