In the morning we dinghied ashore and walked through the little village and up to the cascading waterfall. No roads are in this village and the only vehicles around were quads.

We then headed back to La Cruz at 13:00 so we could deal with getting the auto-pilot fixed once again. But when we were almost all the way back, Jordan started fiddling with the controls again and it suddenly decided to work. So we changed direction and headed south at 18:00 for Chamela, about 18 hours away. What a relief it was to finally be on our way and not waiting for repairs! Hopefully, no more failures.
We've seen a lot of breaching whales during our travels but today we spotted one about 200 m off our port quarter that leaped completely out of the water - what a sight it was!
On our travels to and from Yelapa, we had the watermaker running but had to continually turn it on and off as we kept running into ribbons of red tide. Lately, there has been a lot of red tide visible in the waters.
As we rounded the point at Cabo Corrientes, a typically windy area, the wind died. Sigh...looks like we will be motoring once again instead of sailing.
Beautiful sunset as we motored towards Chamela
Tonight, we saw a lot of glistening phosphorescence in the waves alongside Sea Turtle.
