Arrival in Punta de Mita

04 December 2013 | Banderas Bay, Mexico
Absolutely perfect!
At about 10 am we arrived at Punta de Mita, at the northern entrance to Banderas Bay where Puerto Vallarta is located. We went around the corner and tucked into a bight that protected us (sort of) from the ocean swell and dropped our anchor is 25 feet of water. In spite of our attempts to hide behind the bight, it was a pretty rolly anchorage. But who cares – we are really in the tropics now! We didn’t even go to shore for several days. We simply enjoyed the ocean motion and stared for hours at the beautiful tropical scenery. There are miles of cream colored beaches, coconut palms and jungle trees and bushes as far as we can see. We see the mountain jungle 50 miles away.

It is not possible to describe the feelings we get in the tropics. There is certainly a feeling that we have arrived in paradise. We have to pinch ourselves to be sure we aren’t dreaming. We’ve actually made it this far.
The photo shows the skipper getting ready to drop the anchor at Punta de Mita, while the Admiral is at the helm picking out the perfect place to anchor.
