Spring in the Sea of Cortez

Indigo and her crew are enjoying the best of life on the boat - spring in the Sea of Cortez. We left La Paz behind ten days ago, and were lucky with three great days of southerly winds, so that we could sail north flying our spinnaker. The odd photo above shows the bottom of the colorful sail, with a view of one of the coastal fishing villages beneath.

We stayed at anchor in the bay of Agua Verde for five days while the wind blew hard from the north. This vista is looking north from the hillsides that surround the bay, showing the wind driven waves. Hard to imagine that the water in the protected bay behind me was calm and green.

We hiked all over the hills and valleys surrounding the anchorage, and talked with some of the locals. This boy was very eager to show us his favorite chicken. 

Spring really is a great time in the Sea of Cortez, in part because there are more boats here now, and there are more gatherings and opportunities to meet new people.
