Beautiful sunset...but the clouds brought the threat of Lowell....so we left to go back to Puerto Escondido...safe harbor...the storm turned out to be just some rain and left us with muggy, humid and buggy weather....we could have been in New Jersey in the summer!

We decided to head up the coast with some friends and ended up at La Ramada. the snorkling and spearfishing were great!!! Lobster, fish, clams every night! We had a beach party with our friends ....bocci ball and a cook out on the beach. A beautiful 3 days in a small anchorage...we somehow did manage to fit in 3 cats, 1 tri, a monohull and a tugboat !

After leaving the fleet we sailed to several anchorages...alone again. We ended up in Puerto Escondido, rather empty of people but we managed to find Terry and Monte who informed us of the Trailer Park...Tripui...actually, hotel, restaurant, pool, and most important....internet and AC! We ended up having lunch and cooling off before the long hot walk back to the boat. The mountains behind the anchorage are amazing...We want to hike up to Stienbeck canyon but the heat is just too much...maybe for another time of the year.
Today we are off to Loreto.
After leaving Agua Verde we ran smack into the middle of a multihull armada! turns out we knew all the other boats! Terry on Manta, Scott and Cindy on Beach House, Monte on Heavenly Star and Henry and JJ on Rapscallion. Who would have guessed! 4 Cats and a Tri. We quickly changed our plans and joined the fleet...we motored about 1/3 mile with them to a cove right outside of Agua Verde! We all spent the day snorkling or scuba diving . Dinner was on Capricorn Cat...fresh scallops, salad and REAL cookies!
You don't know what HOT is until you have a 2 ltr plastic bottle explode in your main cabin! This happened to us two different times and scared the #&%@&& out of us each time! We thought we hit a boat or someone shot at us or we broke something big...like the rigging snapped in half! Luckily, it was a bottle of club soda and not Pepsi... still a mess but not sticky!
Twenty five miles outside of La Paz we came across about 1000 dolphins! How amazing to be surrounded by these fun loving animals! they stayed with us for about 1/2 hour and went on their merry way...looking for food!
