Had a nice visit with Colin and Saviya last week. They stayed at Simply Baku, a 4 cottage beach front inn. It’s right on the beach – see the pic, not good, the bright yellow buildings in the center. Their visit was to look for a great place for a wedding. With our blessings, we hoped they would pick Mexico.
Next day, did a taxi ride up to Sayulita, a surfer’s hangout about 20 miles north. Very touristy for sure. Had a great lunch. C and S had fajitas; B n B had a mojacete – a volcano bowl of shrimp, meat and fish – very delicious
Saw a delivery truck, for hot sauce, and said it was mis-named – should be “Little Boo” after Tyler –she’s certainly a hot sauce.
Colin and Saviya stayed with us for 4 nights which was great. As usual, Colin did up-dates on my computer, showed me how to use Live Writer for this blog (creating a monster) and leaving us with about 75 new movies on a hard drive. They left for a couple of days seeing the sights in Puerta Vallarta and looking at destination hotels. (Hindsight: advantage of not posting immediately. Mexico out; Hawaii in – Wedding to be on 12/13/14 at Kona Sheraton. We look forward to my first visit to Hawaii since Pearl Harbor in 1963 on the USS Harry E. Hubbard (DD-748).
We left La Cruz on Monday morning and anchored the night at Pt. Mita. Getting up early, headed south 90 miles to Chamela. The trip across the bay, about 25 miles was quiet, with a couple of dolphins and whales. Becky said – I want to see a whale to say good bye – and a very large whale surfaced about 150 feet away. I could not make WW4 dodge out of the way – it dove under, flipping its tail goodbye – too much adrenalin for us! Pleasant passage and anchored in Chamela in early afternoon. Had high winds for the last 2 days – 18-20 knots, so anchored down with about 8 other boats.
Will leave in the morning for Tenacatita and stay there a couple of days, before proceeding down to Manzanillo.
