as i have experienced 13 storms out of 13 in this year alone, and other storms in other places-=first year, mazatlan--winds are high there--can be an issue to those anchored as that is not an option in high winds as wells and surge conditions. was not pleasnat--much cloud to ground lightning
and tormentas--ferocious storms.lol btdt my first year here.... ok...
second year wa sin la cruz de huanacaxtle, nayarit....banderas bay-- we were threatened by one named storm--that bud wasnt for us--but the area is conducive to katabatic winds which DO happen occasionally and cause major stress to boating
here in barra de navidad for many reasons---most of which are the protection offered here that is not offered in other places. during jova, o boats dragged--the damage was outside the lagoon
, not inside.. protected puerto escondido cannot say that no boats dragged in a cyclone--i know a few that did. more than one year of it. no thanks.
here in this area in summer, rates are better than good-- some of best in mexico-in winter is high season and they match everyone else's highest rates. baja has no high or low season ratings. it is always high season.
ease of repair and access to appropriate repair souls---better here than in baja. i know too many souls there and most are not on my life's page of friends for a reason.
where storms form there is much less wind
. might drown in rainfall, but that is because it is not desert here---another plus, in my book. desert is extreme-- here is not extreme in temperature daily---we get no days above 90... i love that,and no nights below 72f... also awesome. of course the humidity in summer is high--lol.. if that isnt a positive, go where temp and humidity suits your soul. oh yes and wind direction.
i do not have furycame winds with furycames. i have pleasant rain--sometimes a lil much, but catch the stuff and use it.lol what a concept
we not bragging--we stating fact. is pleasant here--unlike the other summers i spent in mexico--this is pleasant. not extreme in heat, and not intolerable humidity
humidity is good fro skin and hair. and fingernails. strengthens and smooths hair and strengthens nails. also gives us a larger variety of free food--fruit trees actually produce here. plentifully.
have fun in blistering desert heat while we have rain to cool us. one of many reasons i chose NOT to sail baja--i do not DO desert. i treat myself to comfort..
solarbri--look up the damages but also--LOOK UP THE PROTECTION AND WHERE THE DAMAGE EXACTLY HAS BEEN--it has been on the beach outside lagoon. lagoon is where in all the boating
stuff is kept. while you research
, punch in damages to boats in marina and mangroves here in barra lagoon.. i think you will be surprised. i have been here. i have been in la cruz in summer, and i have summered also in mazatlan.
thinking about it and going thru it are two entirely different things.
thinking yields no positivity , living thru it shows actualities.
the inner baja coast gives one the feeling of false security
. when a named storm decides to bounce around inside there it causes much damage. and is essentially unavoidable.
btw--manny was 30 percent this am--he coming up mainland mexico inside golfo de california
, aka sea of cortez--hope it doesnt get to carried away with itself. even if merely windy rainy tboomers it will be uncomfortable there. we actually didnt have winds from this system.. only from 2 of them--cosme and erick. the rest have been essentially wind free raininess.
btw--marina la cruz charges summer rate is 35 cnts per foot per day per month. here is 25 cents per foot per day per month--i choose here as it is safer place for full on hit. for example, oct 2011--jova--ht here with minimal damage here where boats are kept--just do that which the pangeros do..lol easy peasy.
