Back in San Carlos, Nov 2005

Phoenix departure Mexico2005We arrived in San Carlos on November 3rd after spending a lovely day in Phoenix relaxing by the swimming pool. The trip on the bus was an overnight and we stopped at 1 am at the border. We had to take all our baggage – all 9 bags plus the computer – off for inspection. Luckily we found a dolly and some nice Mexicans to help us! The Mexican bus line that we used “Tufesa” had first class buses which included movies and Mexican music.

Marina Seca Mexico2005 marinoseca1 Mexico2005We found our boat already moved into the work area at Marina Seca but they had not even started sanding the bottom of the boat. We were put very close to two other boats, one was so close we didn’t know how they got us in without touching! Once we arrived they very quickly sanded the bottom, applied one coat of primer and two coats of bottom paint.
