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...

Postcards from the Edge - The Edge of the Volcano, that is!

Since we saw no red dripping down Volcan Arenal, I thought I'd post a few postcards I bought to show this is an ACTIVE VOLCANO!

The volcano erupted on July 29th, 1968 wiping out a few towns and causing the death of 87 people.
It has been active ever since.

Our second night at Arenal we could see a very small red glow at the top of the right crater. But in the end we were happy to not see a big eruption!

If you can find the volcano on Google Earth, you can see two red spots at the top of the craters!
