Barra de Navidad

Rebecca, Pirate and I successfully made the 150nm sail from La Cruz down to Barra! We stopped at Yalapa, Chamela and Tenacatatit for overnight anchorages.

Before leaving La Cruz we enjoyed a some live music and a great snorkeling trip to the island Mariettas and the world famous Hidden Beach!

In Yalapa we hiked to the waterfalls and had lobster on the beach.

Chamela was a quick overnight anchorage. Tenacatita was awesome and we hope to go back up there!

Barra is great and we met up with our friends Paul and Gina who have been here for a month.

Captain Ivan and I successfully made the 2 1/2 day voyage from La Paz to Puerto Vallarta. It was an epic sailing trip with big wind and big waves. We stopped on Isla Isabella on the way for a morning hike before continuing on to PV. Serendipity II is safely docked in La Cruz and I flew back for holidays.

Check out gallery for new pictures.

Happy Thanksgiving from La Paz!

Tomorrow morning Captain Ivan and I plan on setting sail for the three-day passage to Puerto Vallarta. Weather permitting, we will stop at Isla Isabella for some bird watching!
