Our MVP crew Bill Bell has arrived, Liberte is fueled up and cleared out, and our weather window is open for 3 days in the notorious Gulf of Tehuantepec. Our first traffic sighted out of Huatulco is this Navy boat that hailed us in excellent English to give us a weather briefing, inquire after our plans, and ask if we'd seen a missing cruising vessel. They told us to hail them on VHF 16 if we needed assistance of any kind. They have a base in Salina Cruz.
Shore showers have never been this romantic!
Marina Chahue is home for Liberte and a dozen or so other El Salvador-bound boats while we wait for the best time to transit the Gulf of Tehuantepec.

Walked the dog one morning and stumbled onto this place.....
The roads, waterways and infrastructure here are first rate. The landscaping is beautiful. And the elementary school has a swimming pool for recess time.
