With Cal and Cathy Roth on board, Los Quatros Amigos began a special journey south to Zihautanejo.
Arrived at Careyes after our disturbing meeting with a submerged rock and managed to drink and eat our worries away at Playa Rosa, a favorite spot of ours that we were happy to share with the Roths!
Late to bed but early to rise, we left Caleta de Campo with Zihatanejo as our destination.
Dinner overlooking Bahia Zihau from Tentaciones shared with our crew! A memorable evening all around.
The Bay is full of life and always changing.
Jeff building our foldable bikes that come in a back pack making exploring on land a little bit easier! Katie’s bike is electric assist and Jeff’s pure pedal power!
Wandering around the town one day, we ran across a painting studio that offered classes. Katie immediately enrolled in 3 sessions and using a photo taken at the Monterey Bay Aquarium as inspiration, produced her own masterpiece! Let’s face it the teacher was a genius!

We walked down to the Playa Madera–where there is a whale tale sculpture–for dinner and could see Samsara anchored in the bay.
Walking back later that evening the whale tale takes on a different meaning….
New crew, Mike Gordon, has arrived. We now have a doctor and a real photographer on board….you can expect the photos to get a lot better from here…!
The incredible magic of Zihautanejo at night!
The artistry of the local fisherman caught on camera by Dr Gordon!
We spent Isla Ixtapa on our way north in search of clear snorkeling waters, but had no luck!
A benefit of having able crew aboard is a quick nap for the captain and first mate!
Heading north to Puerto Vallarta the night sky put on quite a show while anchored in Ipala
Great friends, awesome adventure!
Good times and farewell dinner back in PV!
