We had a wonderful week sailing south from Isla Mujeres to Placencia, Belize. We pulled away from the dock mid afternoon, fueled up and then anchored for the night. There is lots of work getting the boat ready for a sea cruise. The next morning we were off early for the 50 mile trip to Cozmel. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed cruising by the fancy hotels that stretch for miles and miles along the beach at Cancun and further south on the Mexican Riveria. Cozmel is a nice easy anchorage and we had a quiet night. Off again at 6am for an overnight off shore.

The next day at noon we entered the ship channel and by 4pm were anchored off Colson Cay holding a celebratory cold beer.
Our weather guru Chris had more good news for us in the morning on the SSB - days ahead of good weather. So we decided to visit beautiful South Water Cay, perched on the outer reef for a few days. As you can see from these photos, it was a great choice.

But then it was time to check into the country and we are now anchored in Placencia. I'm at the computer cafe catching up and Scott took a bus to a town 1.5 hours away to visit Customs and Immigration. Brent and Wilma are arriving on Friday to join us for a great week. Wish you were all coming too!
