As far North as San Juanico

We have had great sailing here in the Sea of Cortez! The forecast has been calling for light and variable winds, but the winds have been much stronger! We sailed from Juncalito north to San Juanico, then south to La Paz. We found some good and not so good anchorages. We stayed at La Lancha, San Juanico, Isla Coronado, and Puerto Balandra, where we ran into sister boat owners, Jane & Jerry on Aeolian! Our first night together we had a lovely sunset on the beach. We buddy boated for a couple days and found more good anchorages at Painted Cliffs (dinner and dominos on MAIA), Puerto Escondido, and Bahia San Marte (dinner and dominos on Aeolian). Mangle Solo was a little rolly but had a beautiful cordon Cactus forest. We also stayed at Cabeza el Mechundo and went back to Caleta Partida for a couple nights before we headed into La Paz. In La Paz, we restocked our food supplies and went back to the Farmers market for fresh veggies. We had a wonderful dinner out with Aeolian and Idle Dreams, Victoria and Pete our neighbors at Marina Cortez.

After 4 nights in La Paz we headed South again as we are planning on arriving in San Diego around June 1. We spent 2 nights at Muertos, had a lovely walk on the beach and Ellie had her first stand-up Paddle board experience. (She was not so sure about it all.) We spent one night at Frailes and arrived at the Marina in San Jose del Cabo on May 12.

As luck would have it, Peter and Ed Johnson had just arrived back in town and we had a wonderful dinner at El Gonzo.

Fun evening out, on the strip next to the marina.

I thought this building was beautiful in La Paz.

More La Paz architecture. We were on our way to the farmers market. See the women, she is sweeping. Most people sweep the sidewalks and some through water down.

Ellie’s friends, Victoria and Pete from s/v Idle Dreams. They stayed with Ellie one day while we ran to the grocery store. Supposedly she never got comfortable, she kept looking for us!

Ellie’s first paddle board ride. Do you think she likes it???

Woohoo, we are sailing! Wing and wing, heading South. 🙁

Fun day sail with “the boys”. Pete, John (Edwards) & Ed Johnson.
