We are in La Paz

We have been in La Paz for 3 days now. This really is a cruisers home port. La Paz has everything we need and then some. Unlike Cabo the is no Boom Boom Boom going on at all hours. For those stuck in the US mode there is an Apple Bees, Burger King and Mc Donalds. Funny thing is the are always packed!
50 cent tacos and $2.50 margaritas are more to my liking. We have still not explored the majority of the city but do a little every day. We listen to the cruisers net on the vhf radio every morning and learn what is new and what to do in the city. The weather has been in the high 80's during the day and low 60's at night. We have a nice breeze in the afternoon to cool things down . There has been some problem with petty theft from boats so we need to make sure everything is put away and locked up every night. We are having a great time with Haitus and Sans Cles, but also know we will be going different ways soon.

We will be having a traditional Thanksgiving with turkey and the works thanks to a local cruising club. We volunteered to help prepare turkeys at 7:30 in the morning. There are 200 cruisers signed up for the pot luck. Should be fun.

Will write more probably before we leave; it really is a fun city. Today things are closed for the national holiday tomorrow. They are having a parade but they are not sure if it is today or tomorrow, and that comes from the parade organizers themselves.
