Makin’ Water and the A**hole Panguero
Today was a very productive day.  We rose with the sun and prepared to take Ellie to sea.  After stowing everything and spending the better part of an hour rinsing all the nasty mud off the anchor chain, we headed for the fuel dock.  After fueling up and giving Ellie a good scrub down we pointed her bow offshore.  Once outside the breakwater [...]

We Love Barra!!
We are in Barra de Navidad and may never leave.  A couple days ago we dropped anchor in the back lagoon and have been thoroughly enjoying our new surroundings.   Let’s just recap yesterday.  We awoke to birds singing and Ellie was not rocking even the slightest (we are anchored in a completely protected lagoon).  We made some tea and sa [...]

Passage Notes – La Cruz to Bahia Chamela
Wednesday January 8, 2014 On passage from La Cruz, Nayarit to Bahia Chamela, Jalisco, MX. We left La Cruz just before noon bound for Yelapa, just across the bay.  We made water under way.  When we arrived in Yelapa we assessed the anchoring situation but decided the swell was too large to safely overnight and we didn’t want to trust the moori [...]
