An ex cruiser wons a hpuse in La Cruz and once in awhile we go over and enjoy the pool.
A women named April owns an adventure company that caters to cruisers. We joined her for the day and visited Alto Vista, a petroglyph park in the mountains north of Banderas Bay. As is the case with most sites like these very little is known about the people who made the markings in the stone. What is known is was created by shamans who were under the influence of mind altering drugs or so the story goes.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
