Somethings fishy

Hello From San Carlos Diamond Girl and her intrepid crew, pictured above, are just six miles from our final destination of Paradise Village, Puerto Vallarta. We stopped in San Carlos to visit one of the nicest towns in Mexico. From its cobble stone streets to its corner taco stands it is a real treat. We had diner at Phylos which is an institution for cruisers. So what's so fishy about this place? Well as we were motoring through Bandaras Bay today we started to notice a number of dead fish floating by and a red color in the water. We have seen this before in San Diego, it is called red tide. It is caused when a certain type of algae grows so fast it uses up all the oxygen in the water and kills anything that can't swim out of it. We didn't see it as much of a problem until we entered the marina. There are thousands of dead fish floating everywhere. Big ones, small ones, anything that was living in the marina two days ago is dead. The only good news is that this die off occured the day before yest erday and the fish haven't started to rot yet. It smells a little fishy now but is going to be a real mess in a couple of days. We are off to our finial destination tomorrow and hope the situation is beter there. This is the cruising life, you never know what to expect around the next bend.
