The Carnival is in town...over along the Caribbean Coastal Road, just south of the first village (Salina Chica-Meteorologico).

There's meteor showers going on between midnight & dawn that peak July 29th, but the almost full moon, a blue moon, is interfering. It's not really blue, that just means it's the second one this month. The turtles continue to be busy nesting on our beaches & still 'gettin busy' in the currents offshore from Punta Sur. The full moon will be rising over the Carribean at sunset on Friday, and about 45 mins later each night thereafter.  Link to meteor info

Seeking a scrap dealer to take the balsero boat

Para que se hagan cargo de embarcación hechiza en la que arribaron balseros

ISLA MUJERES, 29 de julio.-
      The Harbor Master of Isla Mujeres, Ismael Gonzalez Gil, said he does not have personnel available to dismantle the small handmade boat made of wood and aluminum, which was abandoned yesterday morning along the east coast near the FOVISSTE apartments. The containers used for storing fuel and water have been removed, and it still contains the adapted car engine, broken backpacks, and leftover food such as crackers and juices, whose packaging indicates they were made in Cuba.  
     The Harbor Master said his staff are busy monitoring the vessels of Isla Mujeres and Puerto Juarez that are transporting visiting tourists, in order to assure their safety. He said the dismantling and removal of the craft needs to be done this week, to avoid contamination of the area, since it is likely to break up soon. They are hoping to find a scrap dealer who will remove it, with the materials being considered as payment.
