Having a great time
Sherry,Hot & Windy
February 24, 2012, Isla Mujeres

Had a great time touring the Island of Isla Mujeres today I can see why fellow cruisers love to come here and stay for weeks even months. I have added some pictures. The above picture is of golf cart that you can rent. We were not fortunate enough though to have one of these, we were lucky to even rent a golf cart, everyone had already rented theres out or they were reserved.

New Desination
Sherry 31 degrees, Breezy
February 23, 2012, Isla Mujeres Mexico

We made it from Cozumel to Isla Mujeres. The weather forecast was for 7-9 knots of wind out of the ESE and 0.9-1.2 meter seas, well we had 17-23 knots of wind and 5 meter seas which made for a very rough and lumpy sail, the advantage we had we were able to average 8.4 knots and even had it at one point 9.1 knots so we made it there in great time (6.5 hrs). We have satellite television, wifi, infinity swimming pool, laundry, bar, Restaurant, power, water, tied to a dock and all for $200.00 a week now this may sounds pricey, but when you haven't had television for 2 months it's worth it. I have added a few new pictures.

On the Move
Sherry & 35 degrees
February 20, 2012

The time has come to start moving forward. Our fuel tanks & water tanks are full and we are in good standings at P.A. Marina. We will leave Tuesday morning and make our way to Cozumel where we will anchor and spend the balance of the day touring the town and maybe do a little shopping. We will then hoist anchor early in the morning (Wednesday) and make our way to Isla Mujeras (which is 8 miles off shore from Cancun) where we will spend some time and wait for a weather window to cross to the Dry Tortuga s or Key West Fl. Depends on the weather as to our first destination back in the states. We apparently have WiFi at the marina in Isla Mujeras so once there we will take some pics and update the blog again.
This picture is the Puerto Aventuras marina entrance that we will say good bye to tomorrow.

Cozumel
Sherry 30 degress & Hot
February 12, 2012, Cozumel

The time has almost come for dad to head home to the frozen north, he will fly home on Thursday the 16th. We sailed over to Cozumel where we rented a Polaris Razor and took dad around the island stopping at a reggae bar and having a beer and a margarita we then carried on and went on a Tequila Tour where we taste tested lots of Tequila, I think dad enjoyed that as he did buy a bottle of Tequila. We then spent the next day just lazing around and enjoying scenery and watching the 5 cruise ships come and go (good thing we stayed on the boat) I can just imagine all the people on the streets.
The next morning I woke to a strong blow (wind) that wasn't suppose to come until the next day but as usual it came early so we got up and did the anchor watch, once 08:00 hrs came we called the port captain and got permission to leave to head back to Puerto Aventuras (permission granted) we hoisted anchor and sail and headed out. Thinking seas were going to be rough as they can be in this area. We got out there and actually had a very comfortable sail back. Have added pictures for your enjoyment.
