Moving south

I'm starting to get the itch to move the boat. Just about everybody I've met and know here are moving south. So I was going to leave with them, but was not happy with the quality of the repairs so I put another coat of epoxy fairing on the deck. I had to tell myself that I was not in a race to see who would get to Zihuatanejo first. So tomorrow I will do the final sanding and prime the repair areas so Sunday morning I will putt-putt about 2 miles away to Melaque so I can clean the bottom of the boat. Then I will try to take in the Charger playoff game at Ava's restaurant. Then come Monday morning I will begin my migration south to Santiago, which is an anchorage by Manzanillo. I will be in and out of contact with wifi so don't know when I will post again. For all you folks that are wondering where all these places are that I'm mentioning, go to Google Earth and zero in on mainland Mexico. Just cruise around from say Puerto Vallarta south to Zihuatanejo and all the places I've been and going to are easy to find and they are named on the Google Earth...It's a real trip that I'm sure you would enjoy. Judy-Booty, since you outed me I've been waiting for people to rag on me, but have'nt been bothered yet. And if I stop on the food reports I might as well stop this blog because my biggest supporter will stop giving me feedback. Just pick and choose what you want to get out of this....Pic is of my Princess doing her famous neck tugging. The picture gallery is still not patience is required.
