Left Isla Isabel at about 10:00am. It was a little early but it was doze on the boat or sail. I decided to see what it would be like to sail instead of motor for a change. I hoisted all sails in about 8 knots of wind to sail at about 4 knots. I dropped both fishing lines in the water but didn’t even get a strike. The sail was relaxing, music, calm seas, and very comfortable 80 degree weather. Anne Marie was behind me about a half mile and all was right in the pacific. I had a couple of slow moving dolphins come and visit just before sunset. They must have been bored. It was kinda strange, as they would hang out at the cockpit area aft instead of the bow as most dolphins do. I was sure one of them was trying to communicate with me as he would turn sideways and stare at me. I believe Julie sent him to make sure I was ok and when I nodded at him he broke the surface (I think he smiled), made a clicking sound and went away. The stars came out and again were visible all the way to the horizon. Absolutely beautiful night. For some reason I was not tired and watched “Sliders” most of the night. Morning came just about the same time it always did “just about dawn”. I rounded Punta Mita and headed down the coast of Banderas Bay to La Cruz. I called them on “16” and got a slip assignment (B9-21) and made my way thru the La Cruz anchorage. I am currently here until Monday morning when I will take a spot at the anchorage just outside of the marina breakwaters.
