Bahia Concepcion

13 May 2008 | Posada Cove
Gabriellas grandpa
Had a very nice motor sail to Bahia Concepcion. Bahia Concepcion is about 20 miles long and 2 or 3 miles wide and has several coves in which to anchor. I first noticed this anchorage area on a land trip I made to La Paz about 8 years ago. I could'nt wait to get my boat down here to relax in such a beautiful place. Well, I'm here and it is as nice as I remembered. My first anchorage was Posada Cove which is loaded with a gringo community of about 60 homes. A nice retired gentleman came out to my boatin his dinghy and visited right after I anchored. He has a 30 Catalina anchored there year round and a very nice house on the beach. He invited me to go to town(Mulege) in the morning with him as he had to get a water pump installed on his Suburban. I told him I had friends on another boat(Blue Aweigh) that were right behind me. He said bring them along as he had plenty of room. We had an enjoyable excursion in Mulege. We visited the Prison(Museum) and the old Mission on the hill overlooking the entire valley/town. Then they drove us to the Hotel Serinadad where a plane was hijacked about 2 weeks prior by drug runners. Our hosts, Bobbie and Dave are pilots from Montana and have there tail dragger Maule at the hotel airstrip. It was a real fun day and we got some good grocery shopping done also.
