In Puerto Vallarta with friends and waiting for repairs

NUEVO VALLARTA, Jalisco, Mexico - We zoomed up the highway from La Manzanilla Thursday to visit Dustin and Cami, our power steering hose doing a fine job spraying the engine from a pinhole leak I discovered right before we left.

A little electrical tape and we were on our way.

We used about a half a quart of fluid coming up and as I write this, the auto mechanic is hoping that he can finish the repairs today.

We hope so, too.

In the meantime, we had two visits with amigos Jim & Myrna Keitges, formerly of the sailboats MaKai and also Blue Moon, who now hang their cruising togs in Sioux City, Iowa. They came to PV to escape the freezing temperatures. And next year, we expect to see them in La Manzanilla, they said.

We cruised Mexico with them for two seasons and spent a few weeks in France aboard their French canal boat, Cruzy.

Mon Dieu!

While we waited today for a call from Lobo del Mar - the mechanic - Sylvia, Cousin Ruth and I pitched in helping Cami's business with a boat she has taken on to redo cushions and the ceiling.
