Woke up:  La Paz, Mexico

Went to sleep:  Ensenada Del Candelero, Isle Espiritu Santo, Mexico

Back to the Beach

This morning we weighed anchor at 7:00 am.  The wind was already howling about 15 knots out of the north.  We had only 26 miles to go but wanted to get underway early.  We enjoyed a picture perfect sail north to Isle Espiritu Santo.

Ed and Melinda had said they intended to be at Ensenada Grande on Isle Partida.  As we sailed along the coast of Isle Espiritu Santo, we noticed sail boats at anchor within the far off bay.  I went below to see if the AIS would tell me who they were.

“Honey! Lorien is in Ensenada del Candelero!”  Wrong island!  Oh, well, change course.  Ten minutes later we were anchored near our friends and Jake was anxious to go fishing with Peter.

Unfortunately, Peter had chores to do before he can go fishing.  We have to turn off the water maker, fill in the log book, turn off and close up the instruments, put the sail covers on, put up the dodger, lower the dinghy from the davits, and mount the motor on the dinghy.  After that, a short nap, then fishing.

Later in the afternoon we met on the beach for a lively and competitive game of Bocce Ball.  We played until sunset and then motored home to our respective boats for a quiet evening.
