Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Bahia Chamela's Incredible Islas!

We motored further North and anchored at Isla Colorado to explore the three pretty white sand beaches.
And swim.
And beachcomb.
And watch pelicans sit in trees.
And take pictures of the boats.
And watch hermit crabs.Hundreds of them.We watched one poor hermit crab be hounded, held onto, poked, pinched, followed and grabbed by several others for about 45 minutes...
Yes, we have too much time on our hands...
Either she was a female in heat or she had the best shell on the beach!We went to the south beach where we used to go years ago ~ still beautiful!





Then motored over behind Isla Passavera for the night.

Glenn on "Beach Access" had invited "Lovely Reta" and us over for movie night in his cockpit!
Sort of like being at the drive in movies...

And we had a nice view of "Meerkat" and "Don Quixote" from the movie theatre.

We ended up with one trimaran, one monohull and three catamarans in the anchorage!

Wow, have times changed...

I love the picture of Uncle Jim studying the hermit crabs. So funny.

I agree, the picture of Uncle Jim and the Hermit Crabs is great! Little boys always love hermit crabs.

Hope you are back to Banderas Bay and Punta Mita by now. I am off to San Diego to see my grandsons!
