Living life in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle

We really enjoyed being anchored out in La Cruz (on the hook as the cruisers say)!
Anchored in La Cruz

We have a wonderful view, it is quiet, plus we have a whale show almost everyday.

What could be better than that?

There is a pod of humpback whales that cruise Banderas Bay - looks like a Mom, Dad, and a baby.

La Cruz Church
Best show ever: watching (and hearing) the humpies breeching. 

It gave me goosebumps - I just wish I could have captured it for you.

Superbowl shenanigans
We are settling in to life in La Cruz and meeting lots of new folks, plus hanging out with our good buddies on Evergreen and Rainshadow. 

Always something fun going on when they are around.
Fishing with style

We have been exploring the town.  There is lots of shopping, eateries, and lots of gringos.

With all of that comes higher prices of course - welcome to the big city!
Dancing at Philo's

One reason that La Cruz is so popular with the cruisers - live music - all sorts of live music.  From rock-n-roll to flamenco and lots of dancing.

Almost everynight, there is something going on. 

We have bonfires, seminars, movies in the amphitheater, and the circus even came to town

The Circus came to town
The crew of La Loupiote put on two wonderful shows - hanging and dancing from the rigging of their boat.

They are traveling through Mexico on their way to California earning money along the way.

Hopefully, you will get a chance to see them - they are very entertaining!

Banderas Bay
We are still working on projects, provisioning, and meeting lots of the Pacific Puddle Jumpers.

There are still lots of things on our project list, but all looks good to sail south at the end of February.  So excited!

What an education! A kids dream, whale watching by day, movies by night. Gavin would be in heaven!
