On the Move Again

We have left La Paz behind, and are heading north for several months of exploration in the Sea of Cortez. It seems unlikely that we will have real internet access, but we will continue to post to the blog via the single sideband radio. We will also update our location, so you can check on the link on the right side of the blog that reads "Indigo's Recent Locations".
We have come about forty miles north, back to a favorite anchorage at Isla San Francisco. Today we had calm water in the morning, and were able to kayak around the island. Highlights included a Manta Ray with a 4-5 foot wingspan leaping twice from the water a few yards from our kayaks, and the largest Osprey nest we have ever seen, populated by two splendid osprey. The sky is virtually always clear, and the weather here varies mostly in terms of how much of the cool northerly wind is blowing. It
is a win-win situation: a hot, hot sun and a calm sea or a rough sea with great sailing and cool air. We are bearing up very well under the strain.

Be sure to visit San Carlos (on the main land side) and enjoy the omnipresent music and great kiosk eating (especially breakfast tacos).

Also great yellow fin fishing.

Happy Sailing!
