For the first time since we bought the boat we have really been able to enjoy the places to which we are sailing. That has allowed us to really get a sense of the culture, food, music and find our favorite places while honing our Spanish.
La Cruz has been a great example of this. We spent two weeks in the anchorage and two weeks in the marina. We got to paddle with friends ( including our dolphin friends), Mike took kite surfing lessons and got up the first time he had a water lesson, we enjoyed spending time with our cruiser friends and we found it easy to live there.
Just look at how beautiful the marina is!
