A Month in the Sea of Cortez

We have just returned to La Paz after a month spent in the Sea of Cortez.  Indigo is in great shape, having been well looked after at Marina de La Paz. We traveled from La Paz north as far as Puerto Escondido and San Juanico, and then reversed direction. We are lucky to be able to choose which days to travel and were under sail for almost the entire roundtrip. We found the shoreline, especially up around Loreto, to be remarkably green after summer and early fall rains. The photo above is taken in the estuary at San Juanico, which we have often seen with only a thin trickle of water.

We wanted everyone to see the latest in Mexican luxury yacht design.  I guess this is the marine equivalent to a large armored SUV with black windows. We didn't have an opportunity to visit with the crew and never saw any passengers. 

In contrast, we had great visits with old and new friends on smaller, more conventional boats. Each year (this is our fourth winter in Mexican waters) we meet more people, and it is always a pleasure to encounters them again. 

In two days, we return to Portland, hoping to come back to sail during the spring months.
