Life on the main street of Fronteras, Guatemala

17 March 2018 | RAM Marina, Rio Dulce
We are docked at RAM marina which is on the eastern shore of Shell Bay so to get to town we use our dinghy to cross the river and tie up at one of the local restaurants. From there it's a short walk up to the main street. This is also one of the main highways of Guatemala connecting to Puerto Barrios, a large commercial port. So.....commercial traffic flows right through the town, picture 18 wheelers inches away as you walk the street. Alice snapped a few pictures of life on the street that I've now uploaded to the Gallery.

I'm the cruisers net controller Monday and after I finish and close it down we'll be hauling LB. She'll be on the hard for a while as we take on a few more projects to make her safer and more beautiful.

It's getting hotter here with temps from low eighties to low nineties. The breeze fills in mid afternoon and with our fans full on we are very comfortable.

Vessel Name: Lucky Bird

Alice and I have spent considerable time together on the water; cruising and racing on the waters of New England, the Caribbean and Lake Michigan.

Sailing is our passion and together we've been fortunate to experience the thrills, the camaraderie and the enjoyment boating provides. [...]

We seek the freedom, excitement and challenges of voyaging.

This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
