Mike and Linda Visit

We had a fun visit with our Bay Area friends, Mike and Linda. The itinerary was mostly the north part of  Banderas Bay, with initial stops in Paradise Village Marina, a couple nights on the anchorage of Punta de Mita, and several nights at La Cruz Marina.  We shared day trips to Bucerias, a slightly more upscale beach town with local color; Sayulita, the colorful funky surf/artsy town like no other; San Sebastian, a look back in time at an old silver mining town up in the hills.  More mundane but still colorful adventures included finding ATMs, riding local buses, and negotiating with beach vendors as we sipped cervezas under palapas.  Our cruising friends were excited to have a new couple to impress with their daily beach get togethers and nightly cockpit shindigs.  Linda and Mike wisely ended their Mexican stay with several quieter nights tucked up in the hills on La Cruz at a charming bed and breakfast.
