2/23 and 2/24 Sea of Cortez and on to Puerto Vallarta

Sometime in the wee hours of the morning, due to high winds and heavy seas coming from the North, we changed our direction and headed towards Puerto Vallarta instead of Mazatlan. It was a rough crossing but, with the help of all, we reached our goal. When I came on at 4:30 AM I found 3 little squid (dead) out port door and 1 little flying fish our our starboard door. They were washed up by the waves crashing upon the boat.
Our long journey saw us anchored off of La Cruz in the North end of the Bay of Banderas around midnight. The many lights were a welcoming sight. After a night's sleep, we decided to move on to the marina in Puerto Vallarta and call that home for the next week or so. We made contact with the marina via cell phone, were assigned to slip N 7, docked and secured the Quest before heading to the office to checking in with the marina. We then gathered our paperwork and attempted to check in with the Harbor Master but the seem to close around 2:00 PM. This will be our job for tomorrow morning. Glad to be here!!!
