|Marina Riviera Nayarit in La Cruz|
Friday morning (February 11th) we brought in the flopper-stopper, the stern anchor and the main anchor and headed south again towards Punta de Mita (36 nm) and La Cruz, a further 9 nm. A call to the marina confirmed there was room for INTREPID II at Marina Riveria Nayarit, so we chose to head there rather than attempt the anchorage. Recently this part of Banderas Bay switched to Central Standard Time to be the same as Puerto Vallarta, so we arrived at 17:00 (5 pm) rather than 16:00, losing an hour en route. Friends met us at the dock and saw us settled in. We've done some exploring of La Cruz village itself and sampled some of the restaurants. Soon we hope to connect with long-time friends from Edmonton who are staying in a nearby town.
A special 'fair winds' message to Sea Turtle IV. So pleased we saw you for a short time Friday evening before you headed out from La Cruz. We'll watch for your blog updates and be thinking of you on your journey. [Pictures and more details about the earlier anchorages should follow in the next few days.]
