Which Way is the Wind

After stocking up on groceries and fuel for a month, we departed Santa Rosalia for Isla San Marcos. Isla San Marcos is about 10 miles southeast of Santa Rosalia, and we had past it when we came north. However, we wanted to make the stop to check out the island before heading north again. While […]

Sewing in Santa Rosalia

We decided to stay in Santa Rosalia for a couple of extra days.  We ran into Adios, another boat that we met earlier in Bahia Agua Verde.  They were staying in Santa Rosalia for the week and working on some boat projects, including a lot of sewing.  Lana is a wiz at all things sewing, […]

We had been enjoying the beautiful little anchorage but started discussing where we were going to head next. We had skipped over some anchorages on Isla Carmen and Isla Danzante on […]

Video: Orcas in the Sea of Cortez

Here is our video of the Orca encounter in the Sea of Cortez in July.  We’ve told a lot of people about seeing the Orcas, and they all said how lucky we are.  They are not that common to see at all and only occasionally visit the Sea.  The video doesn’t really capture how awesome […]

Hiking in the Heat

Well, we pushed our limits yesterday and did the hardest hike I’ve ever done. We’re anchored at Isla Coronados, just north of Loreto. Our first day here we spent the day in the water snorkeling some fabulous spots around various points on the island. So, yesterday we decided to do something different and go for […]
