|La Cruz de Huanacaxtle|
The little town has numerous restaurants and music venues, without a cover charge, and all have a laid back atmosphere. The cobblestone streets teem with little mom and pop taco places and small grocery stores. The butcher is next to the tortilla shop is next to the veggie market is next to the beer store. For those of us who won't shop at Wallmart and shy away from large chain stores it is a delight to provision here. You feel like the peso you give to the cashier goes straight into the community. This is a place where when you are in a little restaurant and they run out of something, the waiter jogs down the street and and is back in minutes with whatever the cook needs. Kids play on the streets till late at night and music fills the air at all hours.
The longer you stay here, the more people you meet and the more dinner invitations you get. We've met a passel of people here having ingratiated ourselves into the cruising community by dent of my wit and charm and Connie's musical talents and dashing beauty.

Next up (down) the coast is the wonderful Costalegre "Coast of Joy", the area of small anchorages between Bandaras Bay and the coastal town of Manzanillo. There we will pick up our good friends Keith and Lisa Dekker and shuttle them around the cruising waters of Barra de Navidad and Bahia Tenacatita. Later in February we are hosting our friends Scott and Karen from Seattle for a week. In March we plan to be in Zihuatanejo for Guitar Fest.
