After 6 busy weeks in La Cruz, we had a quick motor out to Punta de Mita, where we *finally* got to put on our snorkel gear 🙂 Only to clean the bottom and float around, but still it was a nice 27 degree swimming experience!
From there we had a fantastic sail around Cabo Corrientes and down to Barra de Navidad… and got to put our stainless steel GoPro stick to good use (don’t even ask… it was a $40 miscommunication that is quite spectacular to look at! haha)
Unfortunately Jon had a pretty bad reaction to “Vermox Plus”, a drug that’s supposed to clear out any little bugs you might have picked up down here but just managed to make Jon feel like crap… but like a trooper he made all his watches and put up with a rolling, rollicking ride!
I’d say it was one of our nicest trips so far…
I discovered a really terrible sounding (and looking!) recipe that is actually fantastic — it’s called “Mujadara” and is “Lebanese peasant food”. 3 ingredients: Rice, Lentils and (super caramelized) Onions. I can’t imagine a better boat-recipe!
Tried to take underwater pics with the GoPro stick… need to keep working on that 🙂
And now we’re enjoying the very protected Barra lagoon anchorage! Just missing the French baker (who should show up tomorrow morning with almond croissants… mmmmm)
Oh, and since it’s the 10th and we’re celebrating our 5-month anniversary (yes, yes, like a high schooler I really am counting months again!!!) we tried to take a cute couple-y picture in the windy anchorage…
And eventually succeeded! Happy 5 months Jonathan 🙂
