Well here we are on the hook in Turtle Bay, one of my cruise books calls TB "coyote Ugly" and at first glance that is pretty accurate. TB once had a cannery which was closed in 1998, since then the town is supposed to have been in decline, however as we have walked around the streets of TB we all have marveled at how nice the small, simple homes seem to be, not any of the shanty type structures that you might expect to find in a little village at the end of a 135 mile dirt road.
Once again as luck would have it, TB is the sight of Carnaval for this entire region of Baja, last night as we were headed back to Si Bon we were caught up in the parade (a pick-up pulling a trailer) followed by people on their way to the festivities, with music blasting and people dancing wildly .....it was pretty crazy as they tugged at us to join the parade and danced with us on the small dirt street.
Our current plan is to leave TB on Thursday and continue south towards Cabo San Lucas....subject to change.

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
Extra: I am currently in Banderas Bay (Puerto Vallarta area), where I will be spending the 2012 hurricane season at the beautiful Paradise Village Marina.
