Anchored off Melaque!  Big surf started yesterday and waves pounding the beaches.  Put out a stern anchor to keep Toketie facing into the seas....too rolly otherwise.  Makes for interesting shore landings!  Met our friends Ian & Ness from "Eileen O'Donan" and enjoyed catching up.  Plan to cruise the area locally for a couple of weeks with daughter Phoebe on board before returning to Manzanillo for final preparations.  Hoping to repair SSB radio as well.  Meanwhile the beer is still cheap, the wine undrinkable (in our budget) and the rum and pineapply plentiful!!

From Manzanillo Bay!

Anchored in front of the famous Las Hadas resort!  Provisioning like mad and trying to diagnose/repair a radio problem with the SSB!  Just another hectic day in the life of a cruiser.....its not a holiday you know!  This is hard work.  Gotta sign off now and head to the pool.....cheers!
