Leg 11_Part 1 - La Paz to Santa Rosalia
Summer in the Sea
June 13 thru August 21, 2007
We are heading north to summer in the Sea. In the late fall we will head south to cruise the mainland of
Mexico as far as we can go. Starting in La Paz we worked our way to Santa Rosalia by the end of June to
stay north of the weather. We stopped at Isla Danzante, Isla Carmen, Loreto, San Juanico Bay, (La
Ramada), Conception Bay and Santa Rosalia. We are currently in the Singlar marina in Santa Rosalia. The
marina opened in March '07 with the 22 slips mostly full now. Each slip has water and power and there are
showers, a pool-spa area, laundry and wireless access. The staff is friendly and more than helpful. Diesel,
gas and propane are easily available. Provisioning is an easy walk to town and excellent. The modern
bus-ferry terminal is next door. We were planning on only a week stay here to re-provision and wash the
salt off. While here we decided to have Bridget's swollen left foot examined by the local doctor. After her
examination Bridget asked the doctor to check my slightly swollen abdomen. He promptly diagnosed a
groin hernia. It became apparent that it would be too risky to travel in the more isolated areas we would see
up north, so under the knife I went to stitch up a double hernia. Minimum 14 day layup before sailing
again. We are now (slowly) seeing a bit of this very interesting and historic town. Go to Santa Rosalia for
more on it's interesting history.
