View from our deck in the Singlar Marina, guaymas

We can see over to the church, the small Singlar marina for boats on the water,

Guy and Deborha's boat Elan, being worked on right next to us and

the lovely shrimp boats right behind us....ahhhh, the smell of old shrimp...wonderful! (not)

Guaymas, Singlar haul out

If you look closely you can see the Capt freaking out! What was that noise and why are we stuck 20 feet short of flat land? Simple answer is ....trailer broke. Luckily, we were about 20 feet out of the water and only listing about 15 degrees backwards...made for good blood supply to our brains when we slept. We stayed this way for 2 days and then with the trailer fixed we were moved up with the other boats. Phew!

On the Way to Guaymas

We stopped and played with some other cats and leaners in the Sea of Cortez race week.
Tried out our bumblebee spinaker. Only got it twisted 2 times!!!!

On the way to the Haul out in Guaymas

We had to stop in Isla Isabella to have our boobie fix. This first guy looks almost ready to fly!
This year we noticed that many of the boobies were taking care of 2 babies...more food? Lots of extra blue foot polish? Who knows.

Baby frigate....only a mother could love this strange looking creature! We didn't see any nests with 2 frigate babies..guess there just isn't enough room.

We hung out here for 2 days, water was coolish not like Chacala some 90 miles south where it was 84 degrees!
