After getting to La Cruz life has been busy, we sailed the pirate for pupils benefit on Sunday and the next day we took my friends Marlene, Jennifer and Zhen for a day sail to Yelapa on the other side of Banderas Bay. We had a great time, we ran into, well not really ran into but we got pretty close to a humpback whale and later on we sailed through a school of large Manta Rays maybe 6 to 8 foot wingspan. Now if Zhen would sent me the pictures I could show the proof……….
This morning we started our slow trip north with San Blas as the first stop, We motored for the first few hours and after that a fantastic beam reach all the way up there. We ran into a group of turtles, this is one of them. I don’t know if it saw us but it was completely oblivious of our existence until we were about 6 feet away, it looked up with a “oh….shit where did this come from” look in its eyes and rapidly disappeared under the surface.
