Coyotes and Lobsters

We are slowly working our way north in the Sea of Cortez, enjoying a string of very clear, very blue sky days. We spent two days tucked into San Evaristo, near the small fishing village there. The north wind blew strong, but we were sheltered and well anchored, and enjoyed watching how the strongest gusts came over the protecting mountain and swept across the turquoise green water in our anchorage.
Today we motored north to the anchorage of Los Gatos, which is ringed with rocks that are like pillows of red sandstone. (We will post photos when we have internet). The local fishermen are eager to engage cruising sailors in commerce, and came by as we were hiking among the rocks to see if we wanted them to dive for lobsters. We did, and the Captain is now working on a lobster dinner. The sun has just set, and coyotes are yelping on the shore. We are the only boat in the anchorage, and we wonder at our good fortune.
