Nayarit (The state of)

29 November 2007 | San Blas
I got my raw water pump humming nicely and off I went for points south. I cruised by the Islands in front of Mazatlan and set a course for Isla Isabella. The seas were flat and I was doing a nice beam reach at about 5 knots and not running my engine.It was so peaceful and quiet. It was so flat and calm I decided to take a shower underway, which I don't normally do. It was great. In the middle of the night I had to fire up the engine to motor for a few hours. Coming alongside Isla Isabella at daybreak I noticed 2 boats anchored that were rolling a little too much for my liking, so continued on to San Blas. I'll be able to visit the island on my way back north. Pulled into the San Blas estuary in the afternoon and set anchor. I normally would anchor out in Matanchen Bay to stay away from the No-See-Ums,but was a little adventurous this time. Spent a nice evening with cruisers and dinner ashore in what I consider to be the most authentic Mexican town I have ever seen. I'll pull out this afternoon for Chacala and visit with my Canuck friends who are land cruising and staying at a RV park just up the road from Chacala. My next posting should be when I get into Banderas Bay.
