Wow, has it been almost a year since we sailed from Puerto Morelos, Mexico, to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida?
That road trip we'd taken through the Yucatan Peninsula was one of our best road trips ever, anywhere. With that now behind us, on May 6, 2011, we checked out of Mexico* and started across the Yucatan Channel, making for the east coast of Florida.
* We had a few hours' delay, waiting for (1) the officials to show up at Marina El Cid with our exit papers; and (2) the fuel truck to show up with some diesel. But in the end, we got out before we'd lost very much time.
