Cruising with the crew of CALOU on the Baja Ha-ha and Pacific Puddle Jump
Moving on... to PV and beyond
02/01/2011, Barra de Navidad

We're leaving Barra de Navidad today, heading north to Tenecatita, and other ports along the way to Puerto Vallarta. We are considering doing the Puddle Jump from P.V. to the South Pacific... stay tuned!

If we are to do this, we have a fairly short time to get the boat ready by the March 1 departure, and a ton of projects to get done in the mean time.

Stay tuned, we'll keep you informed.
