In hot water
Walking the beach in the morning I'm starting to see schools of bait puddling up and down the shoreline. It is a sure sign of good things to come. There has not been much traffic but those venturing off shore have been rewarded finding scattered marlin, dorado and an occasional wahoo and sailfish.
It seems to me the water is much warmer than normal for this time of year. A couple of days ago I found a study indicating the water is, in fact, 4 degrees warmer than normal. Scientists can't explain for sure what is causing this phenomenon. Here is a link to what I found: http://www.octavodia.mx/articulo/379...gl1hJDx4.email It probably explains why our night time temps have been so nice. Normally by Thanksgiving I'm breaking out sweatshirts, Ugg boots and lighting up our fireplace every night. So far this season we haven't needed to get into that ritual. When I was in Puerta Vallarta last week the folks there were telling us the weather was warmer than normal for December.
Getting to Vallarta from Los Cabos was an adventure. I was not able to find a direct flight on a major airline. The routes were through Mexico City or Guadalajara with overnight stops. Ready to give up on my trip I found Aereo Calafia. It is a small airline that operates from a small landing strip in Cabo San Lucas (not to be confused the International one in San Jose). I found what I thought was a direct flight. The thing they neglected to tell me was the plane stopped in Mazatlan. The stop was brief though and the whole experience was very entertaining. No "in flight service". In fact no tray tables to put up or restrooms for that matter. I have posted a couple photos below that will paint the picture.
It is well known that latin men have the reputation of having lovers on the side. Becoming a naturalized Mexican makes me a naturalized Latin male in my eyes. I believe it is appropriate to live up to the reputation that comes with my new territory. I have learned that keeping ladies on the side can be an expensive proposition. It is also a juggling act giving all the ladies in your life the love and attention they need and deserve at the same time. One rule I have made that has kept me out of trouble is my lovers must have the same name as my spouse. Not having to worry about calling a different woman's name in my sleep or her finding a gift or card with a strange woman's name on it is a benefit.
My wife Jen knows she is the true love of my life but still has a hard time sharing me. Maybe it is a sickness but I just can't give up my passion for the ladies. I give all the love and attention possible and lavish them with gifts beyond what we can afford. The love and attention shows. They do what I ask of them and put out all season long.
Back in 1992 I bought my first new fishing boat to bring to Baja. Laboring over what to name her the yacht broker suggested the boat be named after my wife. The main thought behind the idea was that it would be hard for her to get upset with me for spending time and dumping money in my boat when after all, it was named after her. I took the bait but don't know that the idea turned out to be entirely true.
Today there are 3 Jen's in my life. Jennifer my bride, Jen Wren and Jen Wren III.

Yikes! My boats have more propellers than this thing
Who knew I would have gotten to fly the plane had I upgraded to first class
