Just Passing By

11 January 2017 | Barra de Navidad to Bahia Santiago
We were thrilled to see this dolphin and whale swimming together as we motored from Barra de Navidad and Bahia Santiago this morning. The water was flat calm and although we should prefer a bit of wind for sailing, it makes for perfect whale watching conditions. In the event, we had a problem with the mainsail furling gear, so a nice motor to charge the batteries was not the end of the world. It looks like we are in for a trip up the mast in the morning, hopefully Stuart will opt for the job!

Snake

30 December 2016 | Barra de Navidad
My fear of stepping on a snake ensures that we are careful where we walk in Mexico. I like to avoid long grass or vegetation where possible, preferring to see where I am putting my feet. Consequently, this is the first snake we have seen since we have been here. I think it was, just as we have always been promised, just as keen as we were, to get on its way!

A Big Wave

30 December 2016 | Barra de Navidad
We were mesmerised by the waves on this beach although they were tame compared to the ones we saw last year. We decided if we were going to be washed up on a beach, best do it at low tide as the shore here falls by the best part of 30ft. Not a great place for a surf landing!
