On our way home

After two months of cruising south down the Mexican coast, last week we were at our most southerly destination...Las Hadas. Yesterday we started our journey north leaving Las Hadas and motorsailing to Tenacatita. We did stop at one anchorage on the way..Ensenada Carrizal to snorkel and scuba, but the waters were filled with thousands of jelly fish about 8 inches long. I had no desire to share the waters with them...se we kept going.

We left Tenacatita this morning for Chamela with the thought of possibly stopping in Cayeres. We did go into the Cayeres anchorage which was so beautiful only two years ago. However, when we arrived this afternoon, the local fishermen had anchored mooring balls for their pangas virtually in all the good spots...so we sailed on to Chamela where we are now.

We are only 60 miles from Cabo Corrientes and once we round that cape...we'll be back in Bandaras Bay where Punta Mita, LaCruz and Puerto Vallarta are located.

Our journey north back into the Sea of Cortez and ultimately back to San Carlos should take about 6 to 7 weeks. We already have a reservation at Marina Seca for a haulout on April 28th due to low tides in San Carlos.

The cruise south this year has taken a toll on Warren Peace and also due to the economy, we haven't been able to do the normal maintenance required. We are now doing a little commercial fishing to supplement our cruising kitty. Note the picture of our modifiations to Warren Peace.

We have been having a wonderful time down here in Mexico. This is the best cruising season we've had for sure...and the weather is just tremendous! It's Ground Hog Day...everyday is in the mid 80s with blue skies.

We miss everyone

About: We discovered sailing early in our marriage and have loved being on the water ever since. We started sailing on San Francisco Bay on a Catalina 27 and then upgraded to a Catalina 36.
