swimming with sea lions and buddy boating

Swimming among Sea Lions is really neat, and you don't have to go all the way to the Galapagos islands to do this. It's even more fun to do it with another cruising family, and have your almost 3 yr olds join you in the water.  Lot Islotes is located 0.5 miles off the tip of Isla Partida, and our Italian friends Marco and Deborah of s/v Kiribati invited us to join them on their boat to go see them. Bliss stayed behind in the anchorage of Caleta Partida, and the six of us including their cute Jack Russell Pinta took off. Fun fact is that both our kids are born on the same day and are the same age.

Unfortunately we don't have any pics of any of us in the water with our snorkeling gear on, so we will have to come back for that. And enjoy some more time with these playful and cute marina mammals in their own habitat. These are wild animals, so we were careful to stay away from barking large bull males and to respect their territories.

sorry, hard to see but sea lions are in front

It has been great for us to hang out with  other cruising families with young kids. We can all relate to napping needs, early dinners and the boundless energy that young kids have. Our buddies Nicole, Jack and their kids Marietta and Jack Jack aboard s/v Let It Be are also in the Sea right now, and we enjoyed some more time back in la Paz with them as well.
