En Route to Tenacatita
23 January 2009
We had a nice evening at anchor at Chamela. This morning we decided to go snorkeling by a nearby reef, then we took the dinghy to the beach by the little village. The surf was a little rough for a beach landing so we anchored the dinghy about a hundred yards off shore and swam to shore. We had our wallet, towels, and dry shirts in a "dry bag" so we could look presentable ashore.
We had lunch at a little palapa restaurant on the beach, garlic shrimp and diablo shrimp for Pascale and me, and fish and quesadillas for the boys. Then we loaded our gear back into the dry bags and swam through the surf back out to our dinghy, and then rode the dinghy back to Calou.
At that point we started preparing to depart Chamela bay to head towards Tenacatita. Tenacatita has something of a reputation among cruisers as a favorite destination. People have been known to spend years at anchor in "Ten Bay". We're looking forward to seeing what the hulabaloo is all about.
We should be arriving at Tenacatita right around sunset, about 7 PM.
