We are in Port Escondido almost 150 miles south of Acapulco. We did not stop in Acapulco this time, we sailed 48 hours to get here. It is apparently a good surfing stop, but not a great anchorage. The town has some lovely Spanish, or Mediterranean architecture and is very clean and pretty. We are going to head further south to Haultuco tomorrow and then wait for a weather window to cross the dreaded Gulf of Tehaunapek ( not spelled properly).
We are working on trying to get our Ham radio up and running again, we have talked to the fellow that installed it and have some more tricks to try to see if we can´t get it going. Wish us luck.
At the moment we are travelling with the couple from New Mexico that we went to Patzcuaro with. They have their son with them so it is nice to get a young person´s views on what we are doing. I must go more later.
