14 March 2008 | Cabeza Negra Anchorage, Mexico
We were tempted to spend the day in Caleta de Campos instead of traveling, but last night we had some decent size swells. Large swells made the anchorage a little uncomfortable around dinner time. Knowing that the swells are supposed to build in the next few days, we decided to push on instead of checking out Caleta de Campos. I will say though, the locals sure did check us out! They don't get many visiting yachts here. We must have had 4 or 5 pangas come by and slowly cruise by right outside our boat. Also, we had 2 kids swim out to the boat and hang on our stern anchor rode. Even though we said "hello" to everyone, they didn't want to strike up conversation. It was more of a "just checking you out" visit, I guess.

So, we picked up our anchor at 4am this morning, and we were on our merry way. We're getting good at picking up 2 anchors in pitch black. I wouldn't say we prefer to leave that early, it just becomes a necessity to make the next anchorage before dark. So, we pulled into Cabeza Negra about 4:30pm this afternoon. We roll around quite a bit in this anchorage, but it is better than an overnight trip. We spent a night in this anchorage on our way down to Zihuatanejo, and it works perfectly fine for a semi-decent night sleep. I am looking forward to some peace and quiet tonight! Last night in Caleta, the Mexicans partied till 3:30am complete with loud music and a DJ announcer. So, as soon as the party stopped, we pulled out this morning. I didn't get much sleep, but Cory said he slept just fine.

We'll be leaving tomorrow for Manzanillo. It's a shorter trip than our last two days, so we won't have to leave before light!

If you've considered cruising, but never had the ability to cut the ties to land, contemplate this quote from Mark Twain....."Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. [...]
