This is the last photo I shot before our arrival in Cancun...
there is a slight building of the sea visible in comparison from the shot in the last post.

In another 40 miles things changed dramatically.
As we passed the western end of Cuba into the Yucatan Channel we ran into some huge rollers.
There is no way to hold a camera at that speed in that water and expect any kind of focus.

Then, Sobo tried to put us into orbit off one of those monsters... I came down hard in the seat and tweaked my back.
It took everything I had for the next 150 miles to keep pressure off the sore spot by pushing down on the bolster with my hands...
so pictures were the last thing on my mind at that point.
Gotta give mad props to Kevin for his great work getting us across the channel.
In addition to finding the smoothest line, he was constantly asking me if I was ok... the vicodin helped.

I just spoke to Bob. He and Terry and Piere are in Cancun.
Bob wanted everyone to know that although they want to get going as early as possible in the morning, they may have to jump through some hoops at customs,which may delay them getting under way.
Instead of clearing customs at Puerto Juarez (where we came in and where the Team Predator is docked), they will have to take the boat to Isla Mujeres, clear customs there and then head back to the "starting line".
I'll post an update when I have more info...

Heading across the bay... and no, that water is not photoshopped.
