Well, after a couple incredible weeks in Barra de Navidad, we have decided to point Ellie’s bow south once again. We would probably stay longer but there is more exploring we would like to do further south before heading across the pacific ocean at the beginning of next month.
We love it here and will miss it. We know one thing for sure: we definitely have a new favorite spot on the Mexican coast. There are many other cruisers who sailed in to Barra and never left; we completely understand why and will definitely be back some day.
We will put to sea in the next day or two on a 2 day passage bound for Ixtapa Island and Zihuatanejo. We want to settle in before Alyssa’s birthday on the 10th.
We will make the 215 nm passage in one leg. I guess there are drug smugglers that ply the coast between Manzanillo and Ixtapa so we’ll stay a good distance offshore (better fishing out there anyways)!
We made a bunch of great friends while in Barra and we are looking forward to staying in touch.
Here are a couple pictures of where we have been anchored for the past couple weeks. Ellie is in the back of the pack (left side of the first photo).
Hasta Luego Barra!
