Puerto Vallarta – Arrival – December 5th, 2013
We had one of those perfect passages you read about. Flat calm waters all the way across the Sea of Cortez. Crystal clear azure water, and dolphins!
Not too far out of La Paz, Julie landed at 28lb Dorado. Go Julie!!
“It’s official – 28 lbs!”
The next few photos are all about dolphins, sunsets & sunrises. During this passage, we all felt blessed. Sometimes we get lucky, and have moments where we feel ‘connected’ with the universe. This happened to me during this passage, and it was awesome.
Check this out!
“Another day at the Office”
Our first stop in Banderas Bay / Puerto Vallarta, was La Cruz. We stayed in Marina La Cruz for 4 days.
“entering La Cruz Marina – 1”
“La Cruz Marina – 2”
While in La Cruz, we had the great fortune of spending a few days/nights in the company of FAMILY TIME & JANABANANA
“Grayson Rohland & Julie – Grayson was designated dinghy driver on many-a-night”
“Dinner on Family Time”
“Yes, that’s our Daughter, we’re so proud. : )”
“Jan & David Goodhead from Janabanana (Great people!)”
“Family Time! Greg, Jenny, Grayson, Zach & Graham”
After a few days at La Cruz, we motored over to Paradise Village Marina, just a few miles away. This is one of the better known marina’s in Puerto Vallarta, where we’ll set up shop for a while. This will be our first long-term stay. Were looking forward to enjoying all that PV has to offer. The next few photos are of Infinity arriving at PVM.
“the couple that cleans together,,, stays together!”
One weekend, we took some time out to clean up INFINITY, and needed to move her out of the slip to get access to both sides, etc. The next few photos were taken by Chloe when Julie and I were moving her back into her slip.
“Harley and I enjoy the moment,,,, she wants some of my muffin”
“this is our backyard now”
“Our son Kal, arrives PV from Vancouver “
“3 Amigos together again! Kal, Chloe, & Julie Nemier”
“what memories are made of,,,”
“the PV Gang, assembled again”
And finally,,, this one is for you James. ; ) Proud & centre on INFINITY ∞
Update: [Dec 15th, 2013, Mexico City] I have had the call to go back to work. The time has come to replenish the cruising kitty, pay taxes, and update the website! I shall update / add info to the site as time and internet connections allow. Please check in from time-to-time. : )
Update: [Feb 16th, 2014]
– 2014 will be the year of the ‘ocean crossing’, — to HAWAII ! — I am both excited and intimidated.
– We will be staying in Paradise Village for the first few months of this year, then exploring the Sea of Cortez for spring/summer,,,and then Hawaii in November.
Heres the place we love, its just a space between two buildings with a corrugated roof and excellent food! It’s only been open for about 8 months now, by a lovely young couple “Lois and Natalie”. Lois is a very creative and talented chef and on Friday nights there are mexican singers.
