We arrived back in La Paz with more drama than desired. After a peaceful night in Lobos, we departed early for Marina Palmira where we planned to fuel up and dock for the summer. We had a perfect docking at the fuel dock and we're heading to dock three, but found ourselves with no power to move forward or reverse. The engine revved but it was as if we were in neutral.
I shouted to the dock workers "necessito ayudar, por favor" and before we knew it, we had help all around us. The captain and crew aboard m/v Navagante were awesome, calming and extremely helpful, and together with the marina staff and m/v Ozzy, we miraculously docked without any incident. Muchos gracias!!
We connected with Agave Azul and had a lovely dinner at Il Rustico.
Shindig arrived yesterday morning and the six of us went out to celebrate Rob's birthday which was on Sunday.
We started out on Agave Azul for appetizers and margs.
After that went to Racho Viejo and had the melt-in-your mouth arrachara. We gave Rob a little birthday song while decked out in silly masks.
Of course, what birthday celebration is complete without ice cream?
A very fun reunion and celebration. Feliz Cumpleaños, Roberto!
I leave in the morning for Denver. Mike is staying an extra week to get boat projects completed.
We logged 1800 miles on this 2014-15 journey. We learned a lot, grew our confidence, appreciate each other more, and feel in great partnership.
