We skipped the northern stops and went directly from San Carlos/Marina San Carlos to Isla Coronado on the Baja, near Loreto, arriving about 22 hours later. A beautiful anchorage, we arrived at sunrise to some clouds and a double rainbow!!
Our depth meter panel shows our average speed this trip 6-7 knots. Bill is charting his engine log on the ladder.
.....see we did have sails up!
We are in hopes that the plant and gravel project that was going on to impress a potential buyer due in that week, worked. The balls are more than half gone and we sure would not trust them to hold us. Hardly anyone stops here anymore and the cruiser's Hidden Port Yacht Club has moved back into an old dumpy building and basically run by the Gringos on dirt at (mostly from Juncalito, a plywood and palapa squatters residence nearby). Loreto Fest is in the planning but doubt too many cruisers attend anymore. So new owners, take heed and improve!
Following PE, we stopped at Los Gatos and San Evaristo as well as San Francisco and Espiritu Santo in Ensenada Grande. We met some new cruisers en route and hope to meet up with them again - yet looking forward to seeing old friends in La Paz.
