COMMENT: Beach House – ANCHORED – San Miguel, Cozumel – Mexico
We actually checked out of Mexico in Puerto Moralos, but they give you 48 hours to depart. As such, we decided to take 20 miles off tomorrow\’s
journey and come to the famous diving island of Cozumel. It\’s very built up since I was here with Cindy in 1996.
We luckily met sister ship Switch 51 #12 (the boat after Beach House) in Puerto Morelos. Peter and Mary aboard \”Neko\”. It was pretty cool to see yet another boat that looks pretty much – just like us!
Despite the only 20 mile journey, it took 4 1/2 hours to get here due to the very strong 2.5-3 knot current against us. Friends Dennis and Lisette on \”Windward\” will try and hug the coast to avoid this current as they head toward Bahia de la Ascension where we hope to meet up tomorrow late afternoon.
We\’ll take a look around shore if we can find a place for the dinghy and depart here early tomorrow for Bahia de la Ascension en route toward
Belize. We may stop at the Chinchoro Bank just before Belizian waters which is one of only a very few of the true atolls in the Western Hemisphere.
From there, we\’ll check in at Ambergris Cay – San Pedro, Belize….At least that\’s the plan!…:-)
