Danny and I arrived in Manzanillo today, and we may not make it much further south. I had been planning on heading to Acapulco, but Danny isn't feeling very well, and there isn't much to see down there anyways. We've been looking for clear water (without success) and fish (without much success) and haven't been diving much because of whatever flu or something that Danny has. So when you fly next, cover your face with a wet towl or something and don't get sick!
We did find some Pelicans, and some turtles.
Hopefully we'll have a bunch of pictures to post later on.
This Mexico trip for me is now turning all sorts of corners. Danny is here now, and my big brother Abe is flying in in a week, and I am going to be trying to figure out how to make the trip down here fantastic, but I am struggling with the coldest water that anyone here has ever seen, and the clarity is not good at all. There is this green murk everywhere. Some places the visibility is 5 ft or less, and the best I have seen in the last two months is about 25 ft. I am really saddened by this. I'm also trying to figure out what to do next. I need to leave Mexico by April 17th, because that is when my visa runs out. I'm not quite done with Mexico, and I could easily spend another few months cruising around, and if I want to cross the Pacific, I should leave now, or a few weeks ago. So while I linger on this coastline, I am burning the time that I could be using in the South Pacific.
So why be in a hurry? I can find a place to haul the boat out and then leave it until the fall, then return to finish this trip and cross the Pacific.
That means that I have to get the storage worked out soon, and I can go visit somewhere else for the summer! And I just got an invitation to go to China...
