We arrived in Barra about 0800 and had found a spot in the lagoon after an overnight-er from Zihuatenejo. I was wondering if the French Baker was still about. His almond croissants in 2006 were very delicious. At 0900 here he comes. We bought the croissants and some quiche. Excellent. Nice to stay on the boat and have fresh breads brought out by the baker.
Le Chat Beaute in the lagoon in about 6 feet of water.
After a day we wandered over to the Grand Bay Hotel and Marina. When I was here in 2006 the marina wanted about $3 per foot to use the marina. We checked it out. $30 per night all inclusive so we jumped on it and went into the marina. That also allowed us to use the Hotels facilities. It appears to be a 5 star resort.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
