Silhouette and her excited crew are finally underway for the Galapagos! We checked out of Mexico this morning in Nuevo Vallarta. We had talked about possibly anchoring in the La Cruz anchorage overnight, but once we cleared immigration and customs we decided just to go for it. My last blog post on passage preparation went by the wayside (look for it with pictures in a few weeks), and Patrick decided that the repairs made in Nuevo Vallarta seemed to be working out. So abruptly and without any fanfare, we were on our way.
It has been a peaceful afternoon making 3+ knots in light airs (we're actually up to over 5.0 knots now) and watching the mountains of Puerto Vallarta receding and boobies diving for food for entertainment.
