Beautiful Ballandra

Beautiful Ballandra

As we approached the bay of Ballandra on Isla Carmen, I was increasingly nervous as I counted 3, then 4, then 5, then 6 other boats anchored inside the small cove. But, as we’ve learned almost every time we’ve anchored, everything seems way closer when we’re on the...

Puerto Escondido to Caleta Candeleros Chico

Puerto Escondido to Caleta Candeleros Chico

We awoke the morning of our intended departure from Puerto Escondido to a message from our friends on SV Alegria asking us if it was windy where we were. Mike and Katie on Alegria, and Dave and Marla on SV Cavu were both anchored in an anchorage about 7 nautical miles...

Agua Verde to Puerto Escondido (again)

Agua Verde to Puerto Escondido (again)

We had planned to leave for Puerto Escondido with Catspaw and Mapache, but the weather had shifted a bit, and we were facing some northerly wind with some decent swells. Having already bashed our way through something like this at an earlier date, we decided to stay...

Los Gatos to Agua Verde (Take 2)

Los Gatos to Agua Verde (Take 2)

We awoke in the morning after rolling around in the swell most of the night. While we love the beauty of Los Gatos, we just haven't found a night there where we've not had an uncomfortable roll. The wind had shifted from the prior evening, and we were closer to the...

Oh La La La Paz

Oh La La La Paz

Neither Stu nor I had much idea about what we’d find in La Paz. Since departing Puerto Peñasco, Everyone spoke of it as the next best place for boat items, shopping and all around provisioning. I wasn’t particularly excited about getting back to a ‘big city’ but we...

After a quiet day of reading, puzzles, movies, paddle boarding, snorkeling and lots and lots of sitting and watching the small pod of dolphins that became our temporary neighbours while we were in San Evaristo, we decided it was time to move on in the morning. We...

Agua Verde to San Evaristo

Agua Verde to San Evaristo

I wanted to write this post as I want to make note of it so it doesn’t become ‘common’. There are such spectacular days back to back here in the Sea of Cortez, it can become all too easy to let them pass by without remark. Our view one morning from one of our...

Catch Up

Catch Up

Ugh, once again I've been failing at regularly updating the blog, and really there is not much excuse, save for the fact the more 'behind' I feel in posting, the more I avoid dealing with it. I've written a few posts along the way, and have held back on posting them...

Travelogue – Santa Rosalia to Caleta San Juanico

Travelogue – Santa Rosalia to Caleta San Juanico

I just had a peek, and the last time I wrote a blog post was 30 days ago. I can definitely use the excuse that we’ve spent the better part of that away from cell service and offline, or in range of inadequate cell service; however, that wouldn’t be entirely accurate,...
