Barra de Navidad

We did an overnight leg from PV to Tenacatita, met up with friends for the
night, then left the next day for Barra de Navidad. This place has a
great anchorage, a nice town and even a good surf spot. We┬┤ll probably
hang out here for a while before we start to work our way back north.

More Sailing

We’re going to leave the Puerto Vallarta area and sail further south for a month or so.  Sherrell’s surgery went well and so did our visit with family.  Now we are working on the outboard (plugged jets in the carburetor), changing the engine oil on the boat, restocking our water and fresh produce and last minute internet crap before we go tomorrow.

 

It will be nice to be in a more remote area and to see some of our friends again!

Bahia Banderas

We departed Mazatlan 3/2 and traveled to Isla Isabela a beautiful bird
sanctuary about 92 miles away. However the tiny anchorage was packed with
boats so we squeezed in and slept for about 4 hours then raised anchor and
left. It is too bad because we both really wanted to see the birds on the
island for over a year now. So when we finally arrived and found it
packed with boats that had no plans of leaving we were bummed.

Oh well, we were on a schedule anyway. We still have to find a slip then
get to Guadalajara for surgery, return back and meet family. So far
everything has worked better than expected. We arrived in La Cruz almost
48 hours after leaving Mazatlan. We found a good spot to anchor near old
friends. We called one of the marinas and found one that would let us tie
up to some pilings while we are in Guadalajara. Pretty amazing. I wish
our logistics always worked out this easy.

Anyway, surgery next week, recovery then returning for visiting family
will keep us busy. I am sure things will keep going as smoothly as
everything has so far.

Heading out

We got our papers back from immigration and we're planning to depart
Mazatlan tomorrow! Yeah! We'll head to Isla Isabela, then Banderas Bay
and PV. From there we'll bus it to Guadalajara for surgery then return to
PV to visit family when they fly in.

It feels so good to be getting ready to set sail!
