bubba liked the weather we had this week–he has been a pig and eating–or wanting to — so much–he lost some weight in summer and looked really good—now he has gained some of the weight back for winter–we see how much of his beautiful fur and weight he will really need this winter, as we ready boat for sailing further south.
working on getting my garmin together and my electrical system repaired… should be done within the month, and i should be able to hand sew my jib clews and reinstall–is roller furling– and fuel and and and then go out of here this winter– has been lovely and i would love to be involved with carnivale and lay a bit , but is getting about half past time to sail……i have lovely awesome friends here in mazatlan and i will miss em-i hope they come sailing with me sometime– would be cool!!
kayaking wont be same without alkoholyak….LOL
ok i find out after waiting 12 more days for a package that we may or may not have a problem— as it is impossible to have anything delivered to ye in mexico, my package sent to me from a good friend, solar controllers, has worked its way to the ‘number is unknown’ list. big sigh…..so we search. i hope is found arriving here within a few days…is really flustrating to wait sooo long and have disappearance happen. have been watching it for over a month—–hope it shows up intact…..
seems we are spared for now—-at least from hurrycames for the moment….we celebrating!!!
is makin us crazy….. the jova storm is doing weird things and we dont know what to expect..
i refurled my jibsail. am placing solar panels inside boat. am lowering tarps so wind can blow over me and not catch too much to pull me off dock. need to place antichafe on my dock lines.
watching the weakening and path and changes in this nasty storm….
we will survive……LOL
i hope sea gods and aeolus watch nicely over those in this one’s path…..
gotta buy coffee and rum…..party on e dock…..LOL
we sit here watching a few storms form and dissipate, now we have a set of fun ones being pushed by high pressure above and below into our neighborhood– puerto vallarta looks like the intended target, but mother nature has a sense of humor and plays practical jokes. thi one named jova is conjoined in twinville with irwin, and both are predicted to come this way despite our efforts to have them go to sea…
our basin is protected to a cat 3, at which time we all die…lol.. but as of this moment, the predictions are cat 3 for pv, ts for us…i like that we have a bit of a natural protection in geography of the area, and much baffling of waters as our entrance looks to have been designed with storms in mind.
so we hunker down and wait for fun and games–mebbe i should buy some party goods and have a hurrycame party on my dock…. there are many boats that are mostly unattended here and federales, as well… will be interesting to see what comes of this mayhem from the sea.
is always good to remember that the gods gave us this blessing of pair a dice and they can also take it away… seems we forget that bit all too often.
and, yes, i am staying on board until i can no longer–if is cat 3 or above, we leave, and the boats must fend for selves, but it still isnt looking like that problem will occur. unless mommy natcher has a bad twist to her humor.
yes, martha, i will take pix, and mebbe even videos, but i think yours are safe for the national geographic live aboard in a ‘cane prize…..
