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.

Sunset in La Cruz

Thanks to an extended Pineapple Express weather system (yes, they affect us too) we’ve had more clouds than usual here- which translates to spectacular sunsets. This one actually included a rainbow, completely tinted pink in the sunset- one of the most amazing weather vistas I’ve ever seen! We’ve even had- gasp!- RAIN. This is unheard of, frankly. Average rainfall for this area, at this time of year, is approximately… zero. Well, we’ve had rain several times and even some spectacular lightning. The crew of Totem is hustling to get ourselves out of Banderas Bay (or at least, La Cruz)…posting will resume more routinely once we can extract ourselves…

    Sam comes running downstairs just now…. “Mom! Mom! Please see sv.totem dot com! They have the most beautiful picture!!!”

    So I look, and he says, “And look at Siobhan with that tiger! Beautiful!”

    Thanks for sharing with us!

    So, from La Cruz, what is your next port?

    I started scrolling down the page to read the text when Keegan (who was apparently looking over my shoulder) said “no, mommy! go back to the pretty picture!”

    I am even more jealous now! Looks like the kids enjoy the lifestyle too… TIM

    Wow, what an absolutely beautiful picture! Don’t know if we’ll ever sail as far as Australia, where you are now, but can’t wait to get to Mexico!
