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...

The Outer Anchorage at Tenacatita ~ Never the Same Again...

Well, that "one particular harbor" to Suzie...
The best birthday boogie boarding beach to me...
The beach with the kick-ass homemade mezcal for Alan...
The hepatitis-giving palapa for Suzie...
The perfect palapa filled beach with famous fish rolls for all...
The easy swim or kayak in from the boat beach...
The best garlic shrimp ever...Is no more.
The palapas.
The two small tiendas.
The food and drinks.
The kind and friendly people.
The roll your dinghy up the road, across the beach, into the surf to avoid the entrance to the estuary.
The hard working people.
The destination.
The birthday cake providing family.
The homes.
The businesses.
Is no more.

Heather, I am devastated by this news. My tears are rolling down my cheeks and I can hardly see. My heart is breaking for Jose and his family and all the other wonderful people who have made Tenacatita their home for so many generations. IN THE NAME OF PROGRESS, GREED AND POWER! It makes me sick! All I can say is - Assholes!

That is so sad. I hope they can prove him wrong and get their places back, and if not what's wrong with them renting from him? Karma... Karma will get him in the end. He'll try for the Cancun of the west, and it will fail. Especially when people hear about this. Assholes never win.

What is with these incredibly boring anon posts?
Did anon not read what I just wrote and what happened to 100 families? Dumb question.
Yeah, way sad. So many wonderful memories of this place...
