Milagro on the “other side”

It is Christmas Eve 2021 and all is good here on the Milagro. We have just completed our passage from the Baja to mainland MX and are now secured in Paradise Village Marina, Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit. OAT is 86F with 67% humid so feels a bit uncomfortably tropical. Smart sailors know the best time to be out in windy conditions is as those winds begin and before they have stirred up the seas too much. The worst time is at the end of the blow when they are subsiding as it takes a couple of days for the seas to settle. I reckon o one is going to accuse us of being “smart sailors”. So, the first 24 hrs of our passage were a fairly sporty ride. We expected exactly that so were well prepared. Then the wind slowly tapered off to become <5kts and the sea eventually responded as well. Consequently, the last 24 hrs were perfect power boat conditions. Er, but don’t we have a sailboat? <sigh> We have not done this crossing since 2017 and have never moored at this marina. It’s part of a giant resort hotel complex with many, many amenities so it may be fun to explore. You can find us here for at least the next 2 weeks when we intend to move further south as the wx permits. Good wifi and cell coverage here. Merry Christmas y’all!!
