Cruising North

28 March 2009 | Chacala.. San Blas..Isla Isabella
Gabriellas grandapa
After a nice overnite anchorage in Punta Mita I sailed around the corner and up into Chacala.....one of my favorite anchorages. Spent a few lovely days there with friends Tom and Barbara on Hooligan. We discovered a nice little outdoor cafe up the hill that is run by a young couple. He is Mexican(from Guadalajara) and she is British. On friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings they serve Pizza, Pasta, and great salads. It seems on this seasons cruise I go in search of quality meals instead of watching the budget when I go eat......It has been very satisfying. Moved on to Madenchen Bay next to San Blas for one night of anchoring, then the next day I moved into the estuary to anchor for one night. The mosquitos and noseeums were eating me alive this year. I spent one night in the just opened Singlar marina in San Blas and washed the boat really well. Then on to Isla Isabella to hopefully a peaceful anchorage. Arrived at the outer anchorage in wonderfully flat conditions and anchored in clear water(30 foot visibility). I went diving in to check the anchor and take photos of the bottom of the boat. The next morning I went ashore to get the promised pics of the blue-footed boobies. Had a nice tour of the island and got tons of pics of birds and lizards and Iguanas. Weighed anchor then headed north to Mazatlan.
