This is the Bay of Cartagena where yachts can anchor or go into the marina at Club Nautico.
The red arrow points to Forever Young in the slip at Club Nautico Marina. They threw a blade on their propeller when they were coming from Curacao, so couldn't use the engine to get in. The marina helpers and the dinghy and the bow thruster got them in here, a primo spot, actually. This shot is from the top floor of the condos across the street, where Lee Miles, aka Mister Emerald lives. He is the SSCA cruising station host for Cartagena and is a wonderful source of info for cruisers.
One of the plazas in the old walled city, El Centro, had a group of these metal sculptures depicting everyday occupations.
Cindry was amazed we'd lived on a boat for so long and drew me a picture on the bag for my chocolates that I had to wait a few hours to pick up.
Looking across the bay at Colombian submarines. Their navy ships were berthed three deep and there were US Coast Guard ships here, too.
Folger's Coffee used to promote Juan Valdez; now he has his own coffee shops.
This was one of my favorites.
