Yelapa, Jalisco, Mexico

We are in Mazatlan hoping to leave this morning for San Jose del Cabo. The weather forecasts for our 2 day crossing all look good. Or, at least, they look good to me. Mike and the boat would be happier with heavier winds. They are, after all, a sailor and his sailboat. But me and my queasy stomach are hoping the forecasts hold for calm seas and just enough wind to keep the boat moving.

Our plan is to take the boat back to the States this summer. After almost 3 years of full time cruising, s/v La Volante Frances Jane needs some work done and it is best done in San Diego. I'm sad to be leaving Mexico, even temporarily, but San Diego is not a bad place to be spending the summer.

Before turning north last week we sailed to the south end of Banderas Bay and spent a couple days in the beautiful little village of Yelapa. There are no roads into Yelapa and therefore no cars, just a few 4-wheelers and some mules. There was a photo op at every turn.
