communication…down for the count

Friday, August 31st, 2007

Well… a high tention power line and or damage to a tower in a nearby community has taken out the power in Yelapa and possibly for a few days. As an extra added bonus throw in a passing hurricane or two. All will be ok but expect wind and rain and very little communication from […]

One of my old Yelapa friends showed up this week for a rare Yelapa appearance. Even better he showed up with Janine, another friend of the family. We didn’t get to hang out much but I did use his boat expertise in getting our new boat back from Vallarta. When preparing for an adventure having […]
