La Cruz

03 December 2007 | La Cruz Huanacaxtle
Gabriellas grandpa
Pulled into La Cruz yesterday afternoon after a brisk sail from Chacala. When I was rounding Punta De Mita it was blowing to 26 knots. Then about 3 or 4 miles down the bay it dropped to 4 or 5 knots so I motor-sailed the last 4 miles or so to La Cruz. There are about 12 to 15 boats anchored in the roadstead. I went ashore and was blown away by the changes. I leave for nine years and come back to a different place. What was waterfront property in front of Dos Filipes is now all fill for the new boat yard to complement the new and huge marina. I'll take pics tomorrow and post them with explanations. Judy, I took some really nice pics of Chacala and wanted to post them but my laptop 5in1 reader ate them...sorry. Gabriella, all these 1 day passages I make are filled with dolpins visiting me. Coming from Chacala I had a whale blow and surface about 30 feet off my bow. And about every 2 miles I travel a butterfly flitters around the boat...lots of butterflys in this area. I think I might not leave the Puerto Vallarta area because I found a Carl's Jr. in PV. I now know why all the Mexicans are going north..because all the gringos are migrating south along with all their conveniences.
