Houston, Texas, to Isla Mujeres, Mexico

This trip from Houston was covered in an update I did as soon as we arrived in Isla Mujeres. So, rather than trying to re-invent the wheel, I am just going to put a link here to the update. Houston to Isla Mujeres

The following pictures do not show a lot of the actual crossing, just the first day when the weather was great. After the second day, the weather was so bad that I did not want to take the camera on deck. There are a couple of pictures showing Offatt's Bayou, and the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert, which was the night before the passage started.

There are a lot of pictures of getting the boat ready for Hurricane Ida, after we arrived in Isla Mujeres. Also, there are some pictures of the condo in which we stayed for the hurricane, as well as beautiful shots after the hurricane. Please enjoy the pictures.
