Catrinas at the day of the dead

When the Dead dance

We have walked among the dead and have released baby turtles to the Sea of Cortez. And then there was another highlight. A very big one that is.

An End In Sight

We see light at the end of the tunnel. Splashing is imminent, if everything works out the way we want it to. Milagros is almost ready for the next big adventure.

All Good Things Come in Two

After a long stretch of failures and setbacks we’re finally moving again! We’re ticking more and more items off our To-Do List!

All Just A Bad Dream?

We find ourselves in a unique streak of bad luck. Unbelievable things have happened that beggar description. And we were right in the middle of it.

From A for Acceptance to W for Wrecked

After digesting the paint shock, we successfully get some projects done and learn new skills. But the lows are not long in coming.

The pouring rain hurricane Nora sent to Peñasco washed our dreams of finishing our time on the hard anytime soon down the drain. We have to deal with a cosiderable hit…

The First Nasty Surprise

Our refit progressed on all fronts like a freight train. But Milagros had her first nasty surprise in store for us.  

Back to Work – the Clock is Ticking

After 2 weeks of “holiday” in Switzerland, we returned to Milagros. Thanks to a new approach to project management, we were able to tick off many tasks from our to-do list. And we rewarded ourselves with a fun trip to the dunes.
