18 February 2012 | mmm...Pueto Vallarta
Today we made the 4 nautical mile (NM) passage from Nuevo Vallarta to Puerto Vallarta. You might think that a 4 NM wouldn't make to much difference in our overall style of life....think again. We are now in the mega marina, Marina Vallarta. As we made our way into the marina entrance this morning we had to squeeze past a 200 foot mega yacht on her way out, and then tied up in the middle of the lifestyles of the rich and famous.
As we weigh out wether or not to stay in Banderas Bay for the 2012 hurricane season, one of the main factors is where to keep Si Bon. Marina Vallarta is a kinda run down, however, well protected Marina. MV is surrounded by many restaurants, bars, condos and luxury hotels. It's kinda funny that the marina is so freaking run down but the tenants and surrounding area is so upper end??? We'll be here for at least two nights and then we'll make our assessment of wether this is where Si Bon (and Steve) will spend the hot summer months of 2012. This is a tough life with so many difficult decisions to have to make...think I'll have another Pacifico and try to decide..salud.
P.S. the little sailboat in the middle of the Pic is Si Bon.....and I always thought she was so big.

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.
