GLAD HE DID NOT LAND ON OUR
Made it to Mazatlan. Used a lot of fuel motoring against the 10 to 15 knot noserly winds and punching thru the 2 to 3' wind waves. No complaints though. Its good to be here.
Mazatlan is the largest city we've been to yet. There are miles of beaches, some with good waves and lots of surfers. Behind the beachs are scores of condo towers, many many more then have been built in Puerto Vallarta.
We gave our old friends Jerry and Sally on Aquarius a call and were gratified to find them home. We were almost certain they had left to land travel in the US in thier new RV. Got together for a nice lobster and coconut shrimp dinner, then retired to thier beautiful new beachside condo for a few after dinner drinks. Being cruisers they know the difficulties of provisioning without local knowledge and without a car, so they are taking us shopping this afternoon.
We are hoping to begin our southern crossing of the Sea of Cortez to La Paz Monday, weather permitting. We are missing our Seattle cruising friends and want to catch up. Ann and Andrew on Windsong will be staying here to get some boat work done. Hope to see them on the other side.
