Sailing with Tradewinds
Remembering El Milagro
Nancy
04/29/2012

There were Peter & Wendy, Dave, Diane, Alex, Mia & Koa (dog), Clark, Ken & his wife, Jeff, Walter & John & Steve & Roberta. They were our dock friends in Isla Mujeres. Then, of course, the most important ones - Julio, Jaime, Rosie (who has the same birthday as Fernando), & too many other names to remember. They were the people who worked El Milagro Marina. Eric, the owner, came about mid stay & was very nice, friendly & helpful. This place makes you feel like you are part of the family. They welcome you with open arms & hearts & always have a smile for you. It was not the most fancy marina. In fact it was rough around the edges. But that's what made it so nice. They have bikes you can use, no charge. The showers are outside & open at the top to get the nice breeze in. How cool is that? They will do your laundry for you for very little & also have a dinner for everyone on Saturday nights. There are also rooms to rent that are very clean & spacious, for those of you who do not have a boat. Julio is the jefe (boss). He can help you register with the 4 different agencies. Immigrations, customs, health & agriculture. He can also give you advise when you go to the main land to register your boat. (It's just another way to get $ out of you. But at least now the boat is registered for 10 years in Mexico) It makes it very easy & as smooth as it can be. El Milagro Marina is definitely a place that makes you want to go back & visit again. Thanks guys! You made our stay very pleasant. We'll see you again soon.

Nancy is feeling much better today so we will make plans to get under way.
We have made many friends in Isla Mujeres at the El Milagro Marina and hope to see them again, maybe at another marina maybe in some other country.

So glad you are on the mend Nancy, and that you were able to get the medical help you needed. Course, I like Fenando's medications - pills and ?liquids?. O ya. Dennis used to cure colds with cheap wine!
Delay in Departure
Blowing like snot
04/23/2012

Our plan was to leave today and head South, but that has changed. The winds have been from the West one day then North the next at 20 gusting to 40 so our new departure date from our happy new home of El Milagro looks like Wednesday maybe Thursday. The winds then will be from the East which will give us a beam reach on our SSW course. Nancy's back went out on Saturday and she's been in quite a lot of pain. We found a pharmacy to get pain meds which helped some. This morning on the cruisers net we summoned chiropractor Steve who gave her an adjustment. That was a few hours ago, and with a few beers and and few pills she is doing much better. We are spending today on the beach in lounge chairs under a nice palm tree watching the water lap the boats, and birds fly in a comfortable 15 kt breeze. The Dr. thinks with a day or two of rest Nancy will be back good as new. We will wait here for as long as it takes for her to recover as the winds will be in our favor for the next 10 days and we are only traveling for a day.
