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...

Nacho Average Dolphin

Yes, cruising gang from years past, Nacho the dolphin lives!
Jim saw him at the outer anchorage in Tenacatita!
For you that are not members of the cruising gang from years past, Nacho the dolphin is a big boy with a big notch out of his dorsal fin.
He use to torment Ray and Lucy's dog by swimming leisurely past "Pepina Rae" and staring up at the dog.
For. Hours.
Nine, ten and eleven years ago, we would see him with his little dolphin gang in Tenacatita, Melaque and Santiago Bay.

The new people call him Chip.
I corrected the new people.

So we are back in Tenacatita!Anchored in the inner bay.
If Google Earth was taking a picture right now, we would be one of the lower left boats at anchor.We are back to swimming, making water and doing laundry.
And then kayaking, swimming some more, visiting and watching boats come and and go out.

We had a little generator problem which Jim the amazing fix-it man fixed.
He also fixed the watermaker on "Grey Max".
He is quite popular with "Grey Max" and me now.
Not that he wasn't already popular...

We have been watching dolphins, including the fabulous Nacho, swim through the anchorage.
We have been watching loads of small rays jumping out of the water.
We have been watching fish jumping.
All from the cockpit or kayak!

One more Google shot of the jungle cruise ~ which we will probably do again.Because we can...
See the little river?

Ok, back to the cockpit to watch for Nacho, his pals and the rays!

I remember asking Padre Timo why the ray jumped. He said they were jumping for joy.

OK, I can see the little river >(^$&*()( and yes, I want to be there, OK? And I remember Nacho because he always was rubbing on the anchor chain and spooking me!

Please tell him Hi! for us.

Glad to have you back....missed your postings.

Whatever happened to Padre Timo? Anybody have his email?

And he got that "Jumping for Joy" from me, I am sure because I used to say that about all the fish that just jumped out of the water all the time and it would make me embarrass myself as I would be having a conversation with someone and then would see a fish jump out of the water from the corner of my eye and I would say something stupid like "Oh, look at the happy fish jumping!" And the other person (not having seen the fish) would just look at me like I had just lost it! Oh, well, I loved the happy fish! I was happy too. Mexico was wonderful!

Don't you just love Google Earth? That's wonderful that you get to see a dolphin that you saw so long ago.

I got the most wonderful sopresa in the mail today!!! Check my blog later.

And here I thought the rays were jumping to get little parasites off of them... what do I know?

Jomamma - how are you going to explain that surprise to Jody when he doesn't know you have a blog? ha ha ha!!!!!

judith said...

I can't believe Nacho is still around. What is the lifespan of a dolphin? He and Fritz were such pals. Of course the rest of the anchorage couldn't wait until ole Nacho meandered off so that damn dog would stop barking!

The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$
