10 February 2009 | Tenacatita
My last entry mentioned that we had left Tenacatita and were motoring north. Well, as you can tell from this location heading, we are back in Tenacatita.
On Sunday we only motored for a short while before the wind picked up. We beat into the wind to a spot called Bahia Careyes about 20 miles up the coast. This little anchorage is made up of two small coves. There are several exclusive resorts on the beach and surrounding cliffs. It was quite pretty, but the conditions weren't great. It was pretty cramped with all the pangas hanging on their moorings and we had a lot of trouble getting the anchor to set. With the wind coming straight into the bay, we could tell it wasn't going to be very comfortable.
About 4:00 that afternoon, we decided to just head back to Tenacatita. We had a very nice romp downwind with 20 knots at our stern. The full moon made it relatively easy to anchor once again, and by 8:00 that evening we were settled in nicely. Everyone agreed we had made the right choice.
So I think we'll be sticking around here until Dot and Larry leave to do some traveling inland.
