Thanksgiving 2017, Max and I went back to his place of birth in La Paz, BCS Mexico. We visited old friends and spent a week circumnavigating Espíritu Santo Island in the Sea of Cortez. We paddled a tandem and carried all our gear in our kayaks. Max was an absolute champion paddling 7-12 miles a day. The marine life and snorkeling were amazing. It was the trip of a lifetime!
