11-25 Snorkel/Fishing report

We went to Manzanillo - Water is cooler, and wasn't real clear, but O.K. for snorkeling. Saw tons of the usual suspects big schools of machines and anchovies, but no turtles nor that big green eel. I did hear squeeking sounds. At first, I was alarmed as I have a slight chest cold and thought that was my breathing - that I was wheezing. But no, I held my breath and it was still there - Whales jibber-jabbering! Bienvenidos! We didn't see any whales, but it's fun to hear them. Then we tooled around in front of Playa Larga, then on the way back home near Manzanillo again, caught a HUGE sierra! And halfway between Manzanillo and the lighthouse, we caught another - they were jumping out of the water like dorados do! We also caught the red sunset! An awesome day!

The surf is frightening there.
Interesting factoid, Carol Wayne, Johnny Carson's voluptuous skit girl,
drowned late one night at Las Hadas.

We were at Playa Manzanillo - between the Zihuatanejo bay and Playa Larga - no surf at all yesterday. During the rainy season or a mar de fundo event it can be rough there.

Las Hadas is in Manzanillo Mexico, not to be confused with Manzanillo beach in Zihua or Manzanillo Bay in Troncones.

Thanks. I knew there was some kind of disconnect there.

I miss being able to do those things. Thanks for the fabulous report.

Still no sign of developers?

The tree growth over the rainy season has covered the orange plastic construction fencing completely. So, from the water, you can't see anything but trees! Beautiful!
