UPDATE TO FEB 11 2010

We have been a little slow with the blog lately, but we are all fine and in the La Cruz Marina (Puerto Vallarta) waiting out another tropical trough after beating our way back from Manzanillo. The trip was mostly uneventful with the exception of a surface trough that smacked us in the Bahia de Navidad lagoon with winds of 60 knots and heavy rain. At one point the dingy was half full of rain water with the night's rain. We were ok on our anchor but a few boats dragged however nobody got hit by dragging boats. However a boat in Tenacatia and another in Chamela did get hit by lightning. The lighting storm was spectacular and went on for 3 or 4 hours before the wind and rain hit.

After leaving Bahia de Navidad we did one night stops at Tenacatia, Chamela and Punta Ipala before getting to the La Cruz marina to wait out the second of those tropical troughs that are very unusual at this time of the year.

Debbie will post more about our land trip etc,
