Cruising with the crew of CALOU on the Baja Ha-ha and Pacific Puddle Jump
Los Frailes Beach Party
John
11/17/2006

About 30 boats at Los Frailes had an impromptu giant bonfire potluck party on the beach last night, and reminisced about the recently completed Baja Ha-Ha. The partying continues, as we and many of the other Ha-Ha boats make their way north to La Paz. Tonight there are another 20 or so boats anchored in what's reported to be extremely calm conditions at Los Muertos, a little to the north. It's so calm here that we will stay another day before making the last push to La Paz. By the way, the free wireless/satellite Internet access in the bay can't be beat, especially given that there is just one restaurant here and no town.

Bahia de los Muertos

Now we're in beautiful Bahia de los Muertos. Muertos refers not to dead people, but to the moorings, which in English can also be referred to as dead-heads. There's no town here, but there's a restaurant called the Giggling Marlin Beach & Yacht Club. We're going there tonight for dinner. I looked at their menu earlier and they have mariscos dinners for $8 US. Sounds great to me!

Beachcombing at Los Frailes
Bruce
11/16/2006

We spent the day at the lovely anchorage of Bahia de los Frailes, swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear water. There are about 20 boats from the Baja Haha fleet here, and we all got together at sunset for a bonfire at the beach. Afterwards, we returned to our boat for a dinner of Osso Buco.

kids on board

A blog reader sent me an email asking how our two boys are doing. Here are the questions and answers:

What was the boy's prior sailing backround? They've both been sailing with us since they were born, mainly day sails around the SF bay, some races, and the occasional overnight cruise up the Delta. Our older son, Francois, is enrolled in the junior sailing program at SFYC and sails Optis and FJs. Where they excited from the get go, or? Yes, they were and remain very excited. Our older son is prone to mild seasickness (queasiness) though which sometimes bothers him, but he is coping and usually in good spirits. What activities do have for them to do while underway and on the hook? They both love to read and to draw pictures. We have a DVD player with about 50 kids' and classic movies they like to watch. Francois is a nature lover and loves snorkeling, observing and sometimes catching wildlife of various sorts. They like to fish. They love to play on the beach and swim. And they have their math and English lessons. Do they trim or reef sails? Our older son Francois helps to trim sails on occasion. What do they think of the cruise so far? Highlights, lowlights? They have told us they're having a great time. They love traveling and seeing new places, and having new experiences. Of course there are moments when they'd rather be on land. But they are learning to cope with the occasional rough seas. I'm quite proud of them for being such good sports.
