Barb and Bjarne's South Pacific Adventure
Memorable Quotes:To all those who were betting we wouldn't make it through the first year: Pay Up! To all those who are betting we won't be back in two years...send more money!
March 20 2020 We are presently anchored with 6 other boats in Agua Verde, after pleasant passages and stops at Puerto Balandra, Ensenada Grande, Isla San Francisco, Nopolo, Los Gatos, and Bahia San Marte. We enjoyed a rare west wind coming up from Los Gatos; in the gusts we were zipping along at up to 7.4 knots over smooth seas! Today's project is to check ashore for internet, and track down some local cheese, made fresh from the goats we see wandering the hills. For your enjoyment, we are pleased to present a photo-collage of the fun we had in Chacala: see it here!
March 11 2020 Just finished a record-setting short visit to La Paz (28-hour turnaround) to restock on provisions, water, rum, fuel, etc... We are anchored at Puerto Balandra, with plans to sail to Espiritu Santos later today after a snorkel on the reef. Another Journal update - this one about our Tovara Jungle River Tour here!
March 4, 2020 Back in the Baja again! We are anchored at Los Frailes, working on catching up with our journals. Read all the exciting details about our visit to San Blas here!
February 10, 2020 Puerto Vallarta has kept us busy with exploring town, meeting land-travellers, and eyeballing crocodiles that float at the shoreline of the marina. We're here until Tuesday, when we plan to sail to La Cruz and anchor off that town. In between swims at the condo pool that we infiltrated, we've completed our next Journal entry. This one's a generous serving of photos from Isla Isabel - read about it here!
February 1, 2020 We've arrived at Bahia Banderas, home of the famous Puerto Vallarta. We're currently anchored at one of the lesser-known spots in this 20-mile-wide bay: Punta de Mita. Surfing is popular here, with at least 3 breaks of differing skill/fright levels. Our quick tromp through town (it's not big) revealed a lot of tourist accommodations and food outlets. We resisted the pleas of souvenir sellers, but picked up 4 bananas and some cheese (for pizza tomorrow). We've now posted in the Journal section for your enjoyment a selection of memories of Mazatlan.
