Cruising with the crew of CALOU on the Baja Ha-ha and Pacific Puddle Jump
Dorado Pacifico
04/08/2010

We found another hotel in Ixtapa that lets cruisers use their swimming pool facilities (as long as you patronize the restaurant/bar)... the Hotel Dorado Pacifico. The boys (that includes Bruce) love the two huge water slides.

Easter in Zihuatanejo

We had a nice lunch in Zihuatanejo on Easter Sunday. The holiday is a big deal in Mexico, with lots of decorations and festivals.

Here Antoine rides his scooter along the waterfront.

New engine
03/20/2010, Ixtapa, Mexico

Yesterday the rebuilt engine was delivered by panga to our boat. This time the engine was quite a bit heavier since it was fully assembled. In the photo we're hoisting the engine out of the panga (using our boom and winches) before swinging it over our boat and lowering it down the companionway.

We got the engine running and are letting it idle for a 10 hour break-in period.

Francois and the Doc Croc
03/10/2010, Ixtapa, Mexico

Francois gets to know the croc a little better (studiously avoiding the pointy end).

Dock Croc
03/03/2010, Ixtapa, Mexico

We were visited by an enormous crocodile in the marina. The croc seemed to be begging for handouts, and we complied.

You can't get a diver to clean your boat bottom or change zincs in the marina, because the crocs are too dangerous.
