Dave, clear, sunny, warm
We enjoyed the great musicians and music at the Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival, but left early to expand our cruising range while Tim is aboard. We broke up the trip to Acapulco with a stop at Petatlan, about 10 miles south of Zihua, which was uneventful but very rolly, then another stop at Papanoa, a great little find. Very local, no other boats in their little harbor and a nice local restaurant under the 'enramada' at the old wharf. this place and their wharf are rustic to say the least. The wharf is concrete, probably made for some kind of small shipping purposes and no longer in use. Check out the foot bridge to get off the wharf to the restaurant in the photo. To get onto the wharf from the dinghy they had half of an aluminum step ladder hung by rope from a bollard. Dicey to be sure!
We were about the only patrons in this little place and the only cruising boat in the harbor. They had a limited menu, fish! The lady prepared a nice fish plate, basically head and tail on smother in green sauce, it was great! A few beers and some delicious hand made corn tortillas and we were done for the night, which was good because we needed to have an early departure the next day to make Acapulco before dark.
