Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico
We really are off sailing now. We leave at lunchtime today. There was an influx of people yesterday – the Tall People (Jim, 6ft 5in, and Cathy, 6ft 2in) arrived mid-afternoon, and the High People (Scott and Laurie, who met each other on Everest) arrived last night. We had a First Night Party at a ridiculously cheap Mexican eatery – huge quantities of margarita and shrimp for about GBP 10 each.
And now we’re off out to sea. At last.
My laptop has died – the same hardware fault that my previous MacBook had, which causes it to power down at random. Plus I’m unlikely to have internet access as we harbour-hop down the coast. So I’ll be picking up emails via my cellphone, so no large attachments please!
