Settling into our Routine

Posted by

2020 brought the Murphy family a little bit more of the same. We spent most of the first part of January at our new favorite island Isla de San Fransico. We were able to refocus on school for the kids and Spanish for me and Ashley. We also went on many great hikes all throughout the island. We spent many days at the beach and did a little snorkeling. The temperatures are cooling off and we no longer feel the need to swim every day. When we first arrived in the Sea of Cortez the water temperature was in the low 80’s (F). Now it is in the 60’s (F). One morning I noticed that we were wearing pants and sweatshirts as each of us were working on our Spanish. I went over to the temperature gauge and was surprised to see it reading 71 (F). Oh how quickly we all have acclimated. We are now in La Paz again topping off our fresh food supplies and filling my scuba tanks. We are also looking into the possibility of sailing to Mazatlan or Puerto Vallarta for a month or two. We will see what happens.

We started in the small bay just above Victoria’s head.

Those are some serious hikers!

The kids and Ranger had this beach to themselves for the afternoon.
