World Travel – Mexico (Guerrero) 2001 – Part II

Our 2nd stop along the Mexican Rivera is at Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo. We didn’t see anything of interest in town to see/do but did catch a tour out to Petatlan to see a church named Father Jesus of Petatlan. It is said that this is one of the most revered shrines in Mexico

World Travel – Mexico (Guerrero) 2001 – Part I

We leave Costa Rica and head north up the coast making port in Acapulco, Mexico. This would be the final port for most of the passengers; but, not for us. We are taking advantage of what is called a repositioning cruise as cruise ship companies get there ships out of the Caribbean and head for Alaska. We will stay on board and enjoy the Mexican Rivera and ext in Los Angles. So, our first port of the second half of our cruise is Acapulco…

HMCS Kootenay (DDE 258)

Let’s talk about this ship a bit more since this is part of “ReefGate” and was big news here from 1999 to 2001. This Canadian Naval ship (and Restigouche – DDE 257) was towed from Canada to here to become an artificial reef on Navy Day, June 1, 2000. Well, there was a question on how they were purchased and here they sat until it was cleared up in 2001. Shortly after I took this photo the Kootenay was sunk near the Restigouche that was sunk just before our arrival.
