A Journal, with Pictures

Manzanillo, Mexico

by on Mar.15, 2017, under Flying

On Tues­day Feb­ru­ary 23 we left Alam­os to fly to Man­zanil­lo with the COPA group. We had decid­ed to fly in loose for­ma­tion with Charles and Deb­bie Lang­don down the Cop­per Canyon on our way. We got a great view fly­ing down in the canyon, which is Mex­i­co’s Grand Canyon. We stopped in Mazat­lan for fuel, then con­tin­ued to Man­zanil­lo, fly­ing along the beau­ti­ful coast and over Puer­to Val­lar­ta on the way. When we land­ed we had 22 Cir­rus that had to get fuel at a self ser­vice pump, which turned into a social event as we all pitched in to push planes in place. We stayed at the Grand Isla Navi­dad, which isn’t in Man­zanil­lo, but in Bar­ra Navi­dad, about 20 min­utes from the air­port. The hotel turned out to be great, with fab­u­lous grounds includ­ing a golf course and a lit­tle vil­lage a short boat ride away to explore. We had lots of time to social­ize with fel­low COPA pilots, and end­ed our stay with a grand cock­tail par­ty and din­ner on a ter­race over­look­ing the bay.

The Cock­tails and Din­ner on the final evening of the COPA event was par­tic­u­lar­ly jol­ly. Lots of shar­ing of expe­ri­ences, new friends made and old friends enjoyed. It was a per­fect warm Mex­i­can evening to cel­e­brate the end of a great get adven­ture together.

Tomor­row, Fri­day, we all fly out to anoth­er Mex­i­co des­ti­na­tions or on to home.
