We arrived at Bahia Santa Cruz at 7:00am and slowly made our way around the reef and anchored behind Punta Rosas where we got cleaned up, had some breakfast, and took naps. We spent the night there after making arrangements to come into the marina Friday morning. And here we are now at Marina Chahue. It's a very nice marina with beautiful docks, electricity, potable water, an English speaking harbormaster, and Internet.

We visited the Fuerte de San Diego the other day. It was first built in 1616 and rebuilt/repaired over the years. It is now a museum featuring the history of the trade between Acapulco and Manila in the 1800s.

We arrived here in Acapulco Wednesday evening. We had to anchor in the dark in 65 feet of water amongst other boats on mooring balls. But it was calm and we spent a restful night.
The next morning we moved to the marina where we plan to spend a few nights getting laundry done and reprovisioning. Then we will move to a mooring ball and do a little sightseeing around town.
We had a brown boobie land on our boat around noon on Wednesday. He stayed with us for over 19 hours just sitting on the bow pulpit. It was breezy too, but he didn't seem to mind the spray. And he stayed there as I put the anchor down only 3 feet away from him. Finally, Thursday morning he flew off leaving only his poo all over the deck.

Above the harbor here in Zihuatanejo is a building that looks like the Parthenon. Supposedly it was built by the Chief of Police of Mexico City. He apparently had orgies and who knows what all out there. They called him the Black Devil because of his ruthless treatment of his enemies. One can walk up the old driveway and take a tour for 50 pesos.

We are back in Zihuatanejo. We are anchored out near the charming town with this view. Last night we enjoyed a live band that played all the classic oldies that we "boomers" love. These young Mexicans did a great job imitating the Beatles, the Stones, the Police, the Monkeys, the Turtles, and others. It was a very enjoyable evening.
We plan to stay here a few more days then head South to Acapulco.
