Adonai Belize to Mexico
07 February 2015 | Isla Mujeres
Mexico, Isla Mujeres is a great refuge for many during the storm you can retreat in the calm mangrove protected inner cove. After tying up to one of the many docks you can step off and feel the security of land under your feet. Town is a good hike or a short cab ride. I prefer to walk with a 3 day sail ahead. The color of Mexican tile lights up the atmosphere making an enjoyable place for tourist and travelers to stroll. This area is growing and prospering yet still remains small and quaint to a certain degree.
Our sail from Belize to here was pounding into the seas the entire way . Really it was a motor trip we were able to raise the sail once. Along the way the dolphin did play and while approaching Isla Mujeres a whale shark surfaced showing his powerful elegance a moment Wayne had been waiting for. Greg is loving navigation and all the mechanics of sailing while Jeff is keeping the lines out for the fresh catch of the day. Christi is an all-around sailor helpful and enjoying every aspect of the journey. I am grateful to my husband as the master of the vessel with his years of experience and calm demeanor I am confident aboard even during the storms. Entering Isa Mujeres was confusing at night with many lights of various colors, some that made no sense in the nautical world and from numerous directions. It was a relief to throw a line to the fuel dock and rest for the night. In the morning we moved over to Puerto Isla Mujeres a quiet Yacht club tucked away in the cove.
Today will be last provisions and the challenge of getting our dingy up on the davits. Pulling the weight behind is cumbersome and stealing Adonai's speed over ground. Dingy has broken free twice in our travels fortunately noticed and retrieved. She is little big to get up on davits but determined I believe the men will succeed.
