This time we were able to go to the Sound and Light Show in the evening and even though we didn't get the English version on ear phones, the pyramids by moonlight and the dramatic lighting was well worth it. Afterwards we went into the town center and joined the throngs celebrating Easter week. The main square was alive with activity with vendors of all kinds. We had warm cinnamon sugar covered churros and ice cream. Yum!

So after a day of preparation we again headed south off shore for a four day trip to Belize. Puerto Morales was the last place to check out so we anchored off Cozmel and in Bahia de la Acencion but didn't get off the boat. Then we had a really pleasant overnight to San Pedro, Belize. Pleasant means sailing/motor sailing, clear skies, moderate seas and wind and no other boats to worry about. Perfect.
And the much worried about entrance into San Pedro through the narrow reef opening was no problem. Then our luck briefly ran out as we spent an hour running aground in shallow places trying to find a safe anchorage. With some radio assistance we found one and here we are in Belize. More news later.
