It’s Tuesday morning April 29th and the Baja08 cruise resumes after attending a beautiful wedding in Cholla Bay. More on the cruise in a bit but first a little news on:

The Cholla Bay Wedding

Our very close friends and Cholla neighbors Tom and Marilyn Haney’s daughter Melissa married her long time partner Guy Zwick (here-after referred to as the Zwaney family) on Saturday evening. The activities started with a Friday night reception at the Reef restaurant, a putting golf tournament Saturday morning, the wedding at sunset Saturday night and final a brunch Sunday at the McCulleys. What a fun weekend and definitely worth taking a sailing break for.

Weather was perfect for the sunset ceremony officiated by Sally Dalton our spiritual adviser and owner of the local restaurant hang-out Xochitl’s Cafe. Over 100 people attended the spectacular wedding setting and then partied (No Tom it’s not a party) into the night with a local live band. A great time was had by all 🙂

Best wishes to the Zwaney family from the Gato Loco Crew.



The Ceremony was held at the Haney’s on Cholla Bay shore.
