Title: Acapulco....... here we come!!!!

17:31.473N 101:30.482W
 
Sunday 1 August 2010 !!!
 
Left the beautiful Zihuatanejo Bay at 9:00 am to start our journey to Acapulco.  We had a very nice couple of days here as it is a very authentic not to mention cheap mexican town. 
 
Went shopping at the local market which is very much the "real deal" with lots of hanging mystery meats, chicken being chopped up next to the cloths stall (check for bits).  Did the shopping at midday to ensure maximum discomfort and good fun finding fuel also.  Dinghy down the river to a lagoon up a dirt track accross the garbage dump fill up two jerry cans and back again.  All operation 2 hours for 10 gallons of diesel.  On return the luxury international Marina proudly announced they had re opened the entrance.  Cheers.
 
Currently 10:30 AM no wind engines on route to shrimping village 29 miles to go for an overnight rest before the final run into Acapulco.  Showers, water, fuel swimming pool and cliff divers awaiting for us !! YUUPPIIII
 
Will send some pictures from Acapulco.....
