Back in the water again!
11 November 2010 | On a buoy in Puerto Escondido
Ahhhhhhh..... The work is done and Cetus is a boat again!
Puerto Escondido is a unique place -- the large harbor is completely surrounded by land with just a small entry channel. In fact the name means Hidden Harbor. They've filled the harbor with mooring buoys, so instead of anchoring you grab a buoy. You can anchor, but they charge you the same to anchor or grab a buoy and the buoys are checked regularly and are supposed to be very secure, so we're happily tied to buoy #62.
We chose a buoy far out in the harbor because there is no cell phone service in at the marina -- the tower near Loreto is blocked by large hills. But, it you get out here near the low spots or "windows" you can pick up the cell service -- maybe a little spotty but it's the 1st cell service we've had since we got to Puerto Escondido last Sunday, so we're happy to be in contact again!
We'll stay here until Tuesday when Carly flies in then we hope to take her out to see a couple of our favorite anchorages then come back and play tourist in Loreto.
