Anchored at Los Burros
28 November 2006
We sailed northward from our last anchorage with a nice broad reach and 12 knots of wind, makng good time to our next stop, a very isolated bay called Los Burros. The bay is surounded by cliffs maybe a thousand feet high on three sides, it's very impressive. We rode the dinghy to the beach which was strewn with rocks and pebbles of all sizes. John, Francois and I amused ourselves by balancing rocks one on top of the other. When we left the beach there was a lineup of several of them along the beach. Some future visitor will likely discover them. I don't think this beach gets many visitors.
During the sail over, at about 12:30 pm, I asked Pascale, "what do you think we'll have for lunch?". Pascale said, "I don't know". We are starting to run low on some of our food supplies. Just as I was contemplating what to make with what little we had, one of the fishing poles went "zinnnnng", and we had a fish on the line. This was a faily large one, we could tell, because it was a lot of work reeling it in. Finally we landed the fish, a tuna weighing perhaps 20 pounds. Pascale filleted it and we put most of it in bags in the refrigerator, but leaving a few pounds for us for lunch.
This I seared quickly, about 10 seconds each side, drizzled with soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and served with wasabi. Pascale's freshly made cole slaw served as the side dish. Delicious!
