On to Ensenada Ballena and Bahia San Marte


Damn it was a spectacular sunrise. The clouds and sun made for a colorful start to our day. From there I paddled into shore to make for long morning hiking the hills, sitting and staring the nature, and exploring new some hiking areas. My excursion stretched over two hours. While I was gone Ariel put in a triathlon of paddleboarding…

Big activity day in Los Gatos


Ari cooked us a big breakfast omelet to fuel us for the day and afterwards I kayaked in to shore to hike the peak guarding the bay and over another peak I had worked on a rock cairn last year. It was interesting to see how it had grown. Rather than backtrack I carefully made my way down a gully…

We wouldn’t leave San Juanico for five days, ultimately this special spot was Mike’s favorite stop of the trip. And it isn’t hard to see why, we had amazing snorkeling right off the boat. The quantity of fish was well beyond what I had seen in the past. A trip to the Cruiser’s tree confirmed that Strikhedonia’s contribution was unscathed…

Goodbye Bahia Concepion


Sleeping off all the beer and margaritas from the night before we slowly puttered out of Santispac for Santo Domingo. The winds were light but forecast to increase in the afternoon so motoring it was for a couple hours before dropping the hook. Mike took the single kayak to hike over to the fishing camp while I waited a bit…
