Bay of Cholon, Colombia – N10.09.684 W75.39.747 Feb 24 – Feb 25 2011

We were happy to return to this small idyllic anchorage tucked safely away in the mangroves on the mainland near Baru only 20 miles south of Cartagena.  This is an excellent stop for cruisers who desire to rid their hulls of the overabundance of sea life that has attached itself during a brief layover in the Cartagena Bay.  We arrived here to find our friends 

 Mike and Lillian Sv Meikyo

Sonny and Kay of S/v Valentina

 Tom and Pattie on S/v Liberty

who introduced us to Robert,

Robert is a retired boater who now lives on the hillside overlooking his Motor Vessel Manatee

which is the home of Happy Hour as well as occasionally transiting to Cartagena for an all you can carry shopping spree for the cruisers in the bay.  Robert is a very friendly and knowledgeable and offers a variety of services to the boating community.

This was a pleasant and restful overnight stop in the company of great friends, old and new.
