Bahia de los Muertos to LaPaz

Happy New Year!  Left at 0600 for LaPaz, about a 60 mile run.  another beautiful day on the water with 15 to 20 knots of wind on the nose.  Arrived in LaPaz about 1600 and checked with the various marinas there on the way in via VHF only to find out that there were no slips available due to the holidays.  So we anchored out across from the marina in a nice quiet area.  Settled in for the evening with a bottle of wine with Kath and discussed our plan of attack for tomorrow.  We had to get our alternator problem resolved and pick up some supplies.

We cooked up some of the fish we netted, made a salad and had a nice meal.  All in all, not a bad New Year's Day!
