Go Time!


The time had come, we had a window to cross to Puerto Penasco. Our plan was for a 3:00pm departure which left us with time to squeeze in yet another hike! This time with Radu and Katja from SV Imagine. They had recovered from their sleepless night two days ago and were up for some exploring. So off we went…

Fun times with CJ and Ted


Through the early morning hours I was up a number of times where the wind hung around the 30 knot range (+/- 5 knots). By 4:00am things subsided a bit and by 6:00am we were back to the 12-15 knots with gusts in the low 20s. Damn the past few weeks have been windy, windy, windy. And made me very…

Adventure packed day in Refugio


Up early Jack and I dropped the dinghy and headed off fishing. Just as it is supposed to be, it wasn’t long before Jack had his first fish. It was a small cabrilla that we slipped back into the water, a good start. We worked around a point and caught a bigger, but still small, triggerfish. We kept it just…

Always a lot to do in El Alacran


Mostly motoring except for short periods of using the jib we made our way up to Punta el Alacran. I’d enjoyed this anchorage a few years ago and was happy to be back and even more happy to have the anchorage to ourselves. Score! Shalise headed off for some kayaking and the possibility of snorkeling (in the 55 degree water,…

Sure why not hike to the airstrip overlook


I had a plan. Maybe not the smartest plan but a plan. I was going to hit the ridge line of the surrounding hills to get an aerial view of the airstrip. No one else had any interest, so this would be a solo run. After climbing the plateau for the view, I worked my way through an arroyo back…

The party continues!


Work before play – I had to replace the anchor light fixture. So first thing in the morning up Jack and Shalise hoisted me. One hell of an arm work out holding myself up with one arm while soldering the connectors with my other. Whew! But we now have a working anchor light again! Who doesn’t love a scavenger hunt?…

Up early for a hike!


The next morning we started early with Carl and Roxy (Sky Pond) for a hike up the volcano. It was fun to do as a group, well sort of. On the way up Shalise and Jack enjoyed a more relaxed pace and our group split up. As always the last scree climb got our heart rates up and we were…

The crowds of Agua Verde


Victor was excited by the fishing in the area so early I took him out in the dinghy to a spot where fisherman had been the day before. Checking on him 45 minutes later I earned that there was a strong current which pushed him back to shore, better than out to sea I suppose… He put in another fourty-five…

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…
