Living the lush life in La Cruz

Pardon the radio silence, but Totem has somewhere between 1) insanely busy with, and now recovering from, the holidays and visitors and 2) soaking up the lush beauty that is La Cruz. I’m offering this bit of visual candy as a kind of apology. Thanks to an extended Pineapple Express weather system (yes, they affect […]

Indelible memories

Our travels opened opportunities to create some amazing memories with our children. This past week, one such gift came in the form of an encounter I’m not sure any of us will forget: holding month-old tiger cubs at the Vallarta zoo. Their bellies full after guzzling down bottles of formula, the cubs were undeniably adorable. […]

Visitors

We’ve longed for friends & family to visit, to share the beauty of Mexico and a peek into our nomadic life. Our wishes were answered in a big way this past week! First were our old neighbors from Bainbridge Island. Although Jocelyn and I are SURE we were on a soccer field in Jakarta together […]

Goodbye, Baja- hello, mainland Mexico!

We’re happy to be mostly staying in one place for the next month. Making the jump from Baja over […]

things I’m loving… part 1 of a bunch

Hiking with friends! From climbing up the ridge above Puerto Don Juan with Jaime (s/v Don Quixote) this summer, to last week’s ridge hike with PJ… source of the amazing panorama shot below, and one off-kilter timer picture of the two of us. Good times. Who says skirts don’t make good hiking wear, anyway? Sorry, […]

Black Friday Ruminations

posted via radio. Cleaned-up links, and some pretty pictures of our Thanksgiving anchorage, when we get online… might be this weekend. Might not. If I could pick a detestable day of the year, this would be it. More than April 15, more than the most darkest day of winter. It’s is making me think more […]

Fiesta, baby!

It’s a celebration just to have our good friends finally here with us in Mexico, but just days after their arrival we had PJs birthday to add to the festivities. Brad lured us to the beach across from La Paz to help PJ ring in her 40th with a bonfire, s’mores for the kids and […]
