We sailed to the anchorage called San Juanico last Wednesday, and stayed there for four days. The beaches along this bay were festive with large groups of Mexican campers celebrating their holidays during Semana Santa – the week between Palm Sunday and Easter. We kayaked and hiked the shorelines. But we especially liked watching the large Mexican family groups swim, fish, and explore the bay. Above – a photo of one jolly man with his sons and nephews fishing in the fading evening light.
Full Baja mode also means we are cooking more of our food from scratch. If you have followed this blog for several years (bless you, patient friend), you will know about bread baked in our very small oven, in our even smaller 2 quart enameled cast iron casserole. Each year, depending on many variables - the flour we can buy, the climate, and the yeast we are using – we have to experiment to figure out how to make great bread. I think we have hit our stride for this year, as shown in the photo above.
