Barra waterfront after

The beach is extremely ugly but for the most part the rocks protected the buildings. The statue on the malecon is leaning a bit and there is rumor of a beach side pool cracking. My guess is it's the Alondra pool because it's closest to the beach and more likely to have an undercut foundation.

Ship runs aground outside Isla Navidad

I guess aiming straight out to sea was not in their plans. Hard to believe heading directly into the wind would not have avoided this unless they lost power

That's a tight squeeze

What does "dragged" mean ... under tow?

The Mexican cargo ship Los Llanitos is trapped between rock formations after it was dragged and ran aground during Hurricane Patricia near the town of Barra de Navidad, Mexico, on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015. The Mexican navy had to airlift 27 crewmembers of the ship, whose hull was badly damaged after it hit the rocks. The ship had left the port of Manzanillo to try to minimize the impact of the hurricane. Nobody was injured, according to the Navy.   AP

Calm before the storm

It will will not be this calm this afternoon when Hurricane Patricia comes ashore. Patricia turned into a CAT 5 over night and expected to land around Perula .... but it's so large it will effect the whole Jalisco coast. Possibility of some very large surf along with wind and rain.

Swim across the bay from Barra to Melaque

Got lots of energy?  Be on the beach in Barra tomorrow morning at 8 AM. I think I've seen a video of the finish line in West Melaque but that's all

A Barra visit

I had to go over to Barra de Navidad yesterday afternoon to meet with Libra Construction about drawing up plans for a construction project in Melaque I'm working on. They are located next to the ETN Bus station at the entrance to Barra on Veracruz.

Since I don't get over to Barra often I had to take a look at the beach. It's not sandy like may have been planned but the rocks look very solid preventing any erosion up to the buildings. Hurricane season isn't over till the end of November so for two more months there's still a chance. We'v been lucky with pretty calm weather so far this year.
