We are in Bahia Santa Maria, just a few miles from San Carlos, BC. (San Carlos is on Magdelena Bay, we┬'re just across the strand in Bahia SantaMaria) We arrived about 11PM and getting into the harbor and getting anchored was fun in the dark, but we prevailed and got situated and got to bed about 1AM.

Here we are out to sea again and yes catching some fish now. We caught a 48 in. Dorado nice big fish it was a challenge to get on Marsha Dee and cut up, Jeanette cooked up a pan full and it tasted very good now we have enough for tacos and 2 more meals wish we could serve you all some. We should be in Bahia Santa Maria late tonight. The weather is definitely getting warmer-near 80 degrees today, and the water temp is up to 71. When we passed the Coronado islands on Monday, I discovered that the Mexico charts that were supposed to be loaded into my chartplotter, were not there. We just sailed into oblivion. Fortunately, Darwin has a tablet w/ a nav program that has Mexico charts. West Marine is going to get an earful when we get back. More tomorrow.
