Fishing boats, La Cruz12/26/2011
Good view of the La Cruz fishing fleet as we paddle back from town.
Lasers at La Cruz12/15/2011
We're anchored out at La Cruz - something mighty fine about being on the hook. We both had vivid Technicolor dreams the first night as the boat pitched around in an unusually confused sea. That's worth the price of admission right there! And always the elusive search for that ONE THING that's making the knocking sound or the squeak. It always stops when you're sneaking up on it, then starts up again once you're back in your berth. Classic. Here are the Lasers going back after a day's clinic on the water - and another memorable Mexico sunset.
Barbie's back in Mexico12/15/2011
Bluewater Barbie seems happy to be back in the warm - and appropriately themed in her garb. There's some concern about her face which seems unnaturally yellow - I'm sure she's fine.
The good spot anchorage12/15/2011
You can count on Rebecca, as soon as the hook's down in nice water, to be over the side. She wasn't so sure this time - I scared her about the water temp - and she knows I like swimming in a glacial lake now and then. Once she got in, it was all smiles. This is our little cove for a day hook, a private resort just around the corner from Punta de Mita. It was all peace and quiet until a new guest set off a burglar alarm at one of the luxury homes on the cliff. That noise sounded like one of the alarms that go off when James Bond is discovered at the island lair. They shut it off finally and we went back to lounging.
It wouldn't be an entrance to Banderas Bay without a ride-along welcome from some dolphins. Stand on the bow and watch 'em go - unbelievable that something can move like that. We round the headland. It's good to be back.
