Last Day at Anchor this Cruising Season
Today is the last day that we will be out on the hook. Tomorrow morning we will motor over to Paradise Village Marina in Nuevo Vallarta for five months in a slip - hoping that the hurricanes will go elsewhere this summer.
In the last 7 months, we have been tied to a dock for only 9 days and that was last November in Mazatlan. We are so ready to have running water, internet, cable TV, fresh water swimming pools, laundry facilities, and electricity!!! Whooo hoooo! I took this pic of the birds just sitting out on perches over at the marina yesterday. It's really a beautiful facility.
So, here in La Cruz, we have mostly just been just boat veggies - reading, knitting, playing computer games, watching the sea life, wind waves, and sunsets. We've had a pod of small whales hunting thru the anchorage the past week, and Jonesy saw a giant whale too. I've just been knitting various projects for the Sacramento knitting guild - 10ea 7x7 squares for a lap robe project, and a doll blanket for another project. Oh, and of course, I'm still plugging away on another pair of Big Black Socks for soldiers - one sock done and down to the foot on the matching second sock.
When we went into the little town yesterday, the fishermen were unloading a hugh catch of red snappers. They load them up into a couple of trucks, pack them with ice, and off they go to the restaurants for good eating.
It's been a fabulous trip for all of us to follow this season as well! Thanks for taking us along for the ride.Post a Comment
