San Telmo

Qualchan never caught up to us yesterday because we DNF'd and started the motor when the wind died, we had to charge our batteries. Todd was a die hard sailor and sailed he whole way up the channel. We didnt have any more close encounters with humpback whales but we were joined for a while by a playful pod of dolphins.

We scoped out Los Gatos but there were 6 boats in there already and some had stern tied so they didnt swing into each other, it would have been tight if the wind picked up so we continued North to San Telmo, one mile up the coast. This anchorage is gorgeous. Scott from Scott Free commented that we are anchored in a screensaver! There are a couple of white sand beaches and snorkeling reefs and giant red and pink cliffs.

As soon as we anchored a panga came up out of nowhere and Miguel took our dinner order. I already had chicken marinating but Scott Free ordered a couple of lobster and we watched as he drove about 100 feet away and jumped into the water. 30 minutes later he returned to Scott free with 2 big lobster and 3 more for Qualchan. We have put in our dinner order for tonight YUM!

We will be here a couple of days for sure and then heading North to Aqua Verde and then on to Escondido for the end of the month. We plan to cross the Sea before the end of the month so we can be in Mazatlan for a couple of days before my mum joins us there for our last week in Mexico. I feel like I should be asking "Where has the time gone?" but it has been 9 months since we left Vancouver and we are ready to go home, although one rainy day in Van may change our minds. In the meantime its beaches and sun and lobster!!!
