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.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall

Before we left for Switzerland, we wanted to finish a few projects – mostly with success. We also fought our way through the Mexican jungle of bureaucracy.

Life is Sweet

What’s up? I’m Dulce the cat, the yard manager, foreman and supervisor on Milagros. While Patricia and David are working, sanding, painting, epoxying, I’ll take command of the blog.

The Daily Grind is Real

We fight against our weaker selves and our beliefs. And we take the next step in one of our most important projects. But we also experience some moments on the sunny side of life.

The Elephant in the Room

Back to work! Holidays are over! We return to dusty Puerto Peñasco, where our construction site awaits. Time to conquer one of our biggest projects yet.

We Wanna Go Sailing

When fellow sailors leave the boatyard we want to go sailing, too! But we know: Our time on the water is coming soon! Just a few more (thousand) projects to complete…

Always Forward, Never Back!

The last few weeks have been frustrating and tough. But we have fought our way through the slump. We’re making progress and that’s how we like it!

Decision Fatigue – our Heads are Spinning
