Anchored at Bahia Los Frailes
03 December 2010 | Bahia Los Frailes
sunny, 82 degrees, windy
We had a 6 hour run to Bahia Los Frailes today, motoring all the way in very light winds. I should say that we had the engine off and did manage to sail all of 20 minutes during the day. As we approached the anchorage, the wind arrived and started to build and ended up blowing at 15 - 20 knots all afternoon. After dark, the wind died away and we were left with just a gentle breeze and a billion stars above. We are sharing the anchorage with 9 other boats, 3 power vessels and 6 sailboats. After anchoring this afternoon, we took the dinghy shore and explored the beach...it is about 6 miles long with an RV park in the middle and hotel toward the far end. The beach at the anchorage is deserted and beautiful, lots of really clean fine sand and the shore break is not too bad to land the dinghy on, or to go swimming. We also did a hike to the top of a very high hill, most of it rocky and composed of granite boulders. The view from the top was fantastic! Tomorrow we move on to Bahia Los Muertos, about 45 miles away...hope the wind is kind to us!
