It has been a busy 3 days since we left Puerto Escondido.
First stop was Aqua Verde and we connected with a small cruise ship called "UN Cruise" and joined them on a Mule ride along a ridge and into a Valley. Was Fun :).
Then we headed out to Los Gatos with some wind and arrived in the evening with a lot more wind. I managed to get Sophia to shore for a brief time to do her thing and catch a few balls and make it back to the boat barely before dark. Then the wind really came up that night and we decided not to go to shore for fear we may be blown out to sea. Instead that morning, we hoisted anchor and pointed S E for San Everisito.
All day we had 20 - 35 knot winds, double reef main only and sailing 6+knots. Arriving just before dark it was difficult to find a spot to anchor because of all the boats hiding out from the wind. On the third anchor attempt we nestled in the N. Side right up next to a high cliff in 13'. Super protected from the wind but all were very tired and the
propane decided to stop in the middle of the day.....bummer. However the tuna salad tasted great despite missing our barbeque chicken dinner. And we all passed out about 9pm!
Currently we are heading for Isa La Partida under sunny skies with a following sea and winds. Everyone is in there shorts and tee-shirts, thawing out from yesterday's salt and wind. We managed to make coffee on the barbecue and hope to use it again tonight for dinner. All is well, a little tired. This is day 2 for Sophia on the boat only. She is doing AOK. However I know she will be happy to reach land later today and run for her ball. Thanks for posting all the pictures. I think one of the crew may write a blog later.
Seaaaaaa you soon! Diane
