Mazatlan - Chacala


The first morning in Mazatlan we got up and did home schooling LLLLL, and then had breakfastJJJJJ, later that day we decided to go into town. On the way we decided to say hi to other cruisers on a 64 foot boat, that the guy made out of only wood, from his back yard. We ended up getting a tour of the boat, with 19 bunks, 2 washrooms, and 2 masts, and also had a wheel from a world war two destroyer, and a steering mechanism from a dump truck.

After we left their boat we went to catch a bus to the city center, and got some popsicles and ice cream. Then we walked to the old part of town, and my brother and I played soccer. While we were playing, some Mexican girl that must have been around five years old came over and saying some strange stuff that we weren’t able to make out, but it must have been something pretty weird, because afterwards she went over to my brother and started hitting him. Once she was done her attack, we went to get dinner.

Although it took quite a long time for it to be made, I definitely thought my steak tacos were worth it, but my dad regret getting what he got, I’m not sure about my brother though. After that we went back to our boat and watched “Das Boot”,( which means “the boat” in German) which is a German movie about a u boat in world war two. Then we went to bed.

The next morning we got up and left right away to get to a place called Chacala. When we left I put a fishing line out, and a couple hours later I got a foot and a half skip jack, which are basically the worst fish you can catch due to their bloody meat, so we let it go.

Outside the harbour there was a variety of sea life, which included manta rays, dolphins, whales, and birds.

My brother and I stayed on watch till 9:00 pm, and then we switched with my dad for the night.

When we got up 7:00 to take over, after that, there were whales all over the place, and at one point they came to and uncomfortable range, that you could hear them blow. Sometimes they would fully jump out, and other times they just flop over.

When we were almost in the bay, there was a couple of psycho whales, that when I counted, they smacked there fins down fourteen times.

When we got there after one and a half days, it turns out that the swells come right into the anchorage, which meant we had to put out a stern anchor.

When we were anchored we went for a swim, we got our kayaks pumped up, then went to the port captain, after we did that we went to the beach that is lined with palm trees, then we decided walk through town, which took about five minutes at a slow pace. Then we went back to the beach and played volleyball, then we went in the waves, after we were done at the beach we went to a restaurant for dinner, and then we went back to our boat to watch a Monty paithon episode.

The next morning we got up and did some homeschooling, and then went to the beach, we were playing on the beach most of the time, and then we went for a walk to the end of it. We found a stream in the sand coming from some source of water, going into the ocean. After we played there for a while, we went back and had pizza at a restaurant. After that we went back to our boat for the night.

The next morning we grabbed our stuff, and did homeschooling at the restaurant with breakfast. The rest of the day we just hung out at the beach until sunset, and then came back to the boat, I made fajitas for dinner, and then we went to bed.

The end. So now you are wasting my time at the beach, so go mind your own business.
