Who are we and how did we get here?
We are Scott Behrens and Elizabeth (Liz)
Hart-Behrens. Just a couple of crazy Gringos
that set off to find some good surf on our
sailboat "Ocean Lady" in 2004.

We sailed over 15,000 miles up and down the
Pacific coast of California, Mexico and
Central America with 2 dogs and a cat!
We sailed into Nicaragua in the Spring of
2007 and fell in love with the country,
the people and the surf!
So, we swallowed the anchor and settled down
on our little slice of paradise and built us
Rancho Cecilia
Meet Our Furry Family!
Meet Lilly Mae, who came
into our life while doing a
road trip when we sailing in
Mexico. She is a rescue
street puppy from Casa
Raab in Oaxaca, Mexico.
She's now six years old and
the Queen of the pack!
Indigo is our street puppy rescue from Rivas,
Nicaragua. She is the shy one of the pack. She's five
years old, but still a big happy puppy!
Mocha, our San Juan del Sur puppy
rescue.Mocha is now five years old and is
the surfer of the furry family!
Tripster,our rock rescue cat from Mazatlan, Mexico.
Tripster was the leader of the dock kittens at
Marina Mazatlan in the summer of 2006. He had no
fear of our dogs and since we only had 1 cat on
board, why not add another! He is now seven years
old and enjoying life on land.
Meet Sylvester, or as we call him "Spud" He is a
kitten from Pelican Eye's adoption sanctuary that
has been working on using up his "Nine" lives fast!
Yes, he is missing a leg but that doesn't stop him
from getting around. He is now four years old.
Listen for him playing around on the roof at night!
Meet our "Surf Interns" from 2013
