Arriving in Tenacatita

09 December 2017 | Tenacatita Bay, Mexico
George Stonecliffe
Arriving in one of your favorite anchorages can be a rude awakening after nine years away. Local political powers have changed the landscape. Some of the hills have been given a buzz haircut. The mangrove dinghy ride has changed in upkeep. Some of the local palapa restaurant owners lost their businesses, buildings leveled, and security guards controlling access to once favorite places. More hotels/condos have been built on the beach front. But cruising boats still come, and so new friendships spring up, and information shared on boat projects and plans of places to go still occur. This is a big reason for us to go on our journey. Oh, on the way from Careyes to Tenacatita, we saw over a dozen adult turtles on the surface. Maybe they're the Moms and Dads of the turtles we helped release last night.
