We are approaching Acapulco. We have had a quiet passage with light winds, we motored most of the night. We timed it right and had another beautiful full moon last night. Yesterday we saw lots of turtles lolling about in the water. They are quite funny, they just lie there on the surface, some dive when we get close but others just float about occasionally flapping a leg up in the air. We had several pods of dolphins come and cavort about the boat as well, that is always fun to watch from the bow.
I am very keen to go and see the cliff divers here. I was talking to Mom about it over Christmas and I can remember watching the Wide World of Sports as a kid and I am pretty sure in the opening pictorial montage there was a guy diving off the cliffs in Acapulco. If not from there then from somewhere in my brain I have retained an image of wonderfully fit looking guys diving off these cliffs. We are hoping to be able to replace the part that will hook us into the internet. Hopefully one of us will be able to get a decent picture of those cliff divers and we can share it with you. After our visit here we will head back north and get ready to meet our daughters as they fly into Manzanillo at the beginning of February.
