A Time of Transition …

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”

Alexander Graham Bell

This is a time of great transition and awakening for many of us. Everyone in the world is watching the USA and how it handles this economic crisis. In recent weeks Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into conservatorship, the federal government bailed out AIG, Bank of America purchased Merrill Lynch, and Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy. The credit market appeared to be on the verge of collapsing and the presidential race is turning normally apathetic citizens into strong opinionated voters who need to make a difference.

Here in Loreto, a small innocuous little town located on the Sea of Cortez, in Baja California life goes on. The Mexicans have a saying that “When the US gets an economic cold, Mexico gets pneumonia”. The peso is strong and stable but we are affected by the dow…
Tropical Depression Lowell has little affect in Loreto

Loreto spent much of the week preparing for Storm Lowell which was anticipated to hit Loreto late Wednesday night dumping even more rain than Hurricane Julio, which we have just dried out from. Tuesday Loreto Bay was securing homes, sending out notices to batten down the hatches, stores and offices downtown were protecting their equipment and supplies from leaky ceilings and water seepage. The skies were grey and the barometer felt strangely oppressive for this desert town.

Tuesday morning we had some lightening and thunder followed by a few inches of rain in the afternoon. The Port Captain ordered all boats out of the downtown Marina and airports were on standby alert for possible closure. The streets were deserted while everyone huddled at home waiting and watching.

Wednesday morning I had Capt. Chino call me at 5 am with a weather report … the storm was a couple of hundred miles away, the water was like glass, there was litt…
Summer Fun Still Going Strong in Loreto

It is 93 degrees with 67% humidity and feels like 110 F. We have now cleaned up from Hurricane Julio which dropped our year’s quota of 8 inches of rain on Loreto. No real damage but a lot of water, dirt and mess to clean up. The hillsides and fields are beautifully lush and the cows are quickly fattening up from the green pastures. My camera has given up after 2 years of blogging … so hopefully I will be able to replace it soon and show you the wonderful sights of this magical place.

In the meantime, I will share with you the great times that we had on the water this summer aboard REEL TROUBLE. Capt. Chino and I have worked very hard to make sure this is MORE than a fishing trip and we will organize your day to make it memorable for your whole group experience. These are my friends from Calgary, AB … girls just wanna have fun!

FUN means “You’re the boss!” Whether it’s to chase the sailfish / marlin, catch your limit of Dorado, swim with …
