Chamela Bay

This morning over half of the boats anchored in Chamela raised anchor and headed out. Most of them are bound for Tenacatita, a larger and more protected bay to the south. There are high winds and large swells forecast for later in the week. We've decided we'll stay here for now.

Today's mission was to get some decent underwater pictures of what we've been seeing on our snorkeling outings for the past month and a half. And I think we succeeded!

The highlight was swimming with the pair of bottlenose dolphins that live in the bay and seem to enjoy rubbing themselves against our anchor chain. They are not shy and will let you swim right up to them, although they don't allow touching - so far!
