Saturday we sailed with friends, Mike and Steve, and Ace on their boat Nightbreeze about 15 miles to Denny's Beach. On the chart picture you see San Felipe the start at the top and Punta Brava at the bottom, the finish. The sail took about three hours. The wind was on the beam or behind all the way down which made for a great sail. Absolutely beautiful sunshine and light winds. On arrival we went to shore for a local fish and burrito dinner and a few beers. Later watched the full moon rise. Sunday the wind shifted to the west and made a perfect sail back. We made the distance again in about 3 hours and stopped at the Castillo de San Felipe which has been restored. It was established in 1651. Attached are a few pictures from the day.

The Quirigua Mayan Ruin (2000 BC to 250 AD) is a small site not far from the Rio Dulce. The ruins are decorated with carvings of Kings and creatures including turtles and snakes. The run is surrounded by lush forest with the most amazing trees. Several building have been partially restored.
