It's All Good

Despite the short weather windows, we are making our way south and are enjoying our time in the Sea of Cortez. 

Bahia Ramada, just north of Caleta San Juanico
We spent a windy few days in Caleta San Juanico this week, but managed to get off the boat to do a few walks/hikes and to have a great potluck on the beach.  We saw winds in the low 30’s in the anchorage, but Sea Rover’s anchor held us without moving an inch.  We certainly love our 73 lb Rocna anchor!

Sunset over Loreto from Isla Coronado
The weather Gods gave us a small break today so we were able to leave the anchorage and sail/motor 20 miles south to a beautiful island called Isla Coronado, just off of Loreto.

We sat through a few sprinkles this afternoon (RAIN!!  Aaggghhh) but were rewarded with an absolutely stunning sunset this evening.  A wonderful reward.

They say a picture says a thousand words, so we'll let the following pictures describe our last few weeks.

Do you think this may be why the bow thruster wasn't working??

"Sporty" sail past Punta Pulpito; winds blowing 25 knots from behind; seas big
