Loreto to Bahia Concepcion
23 May 2011 | Playa Santispac
As you may have figured out by now...we haven´t had internet access since leaving Loreto. I´m currently sitting in a resturant in Mulege checking email and of course updating my blog. Si Bon is on the hook in a cove called Santispac, which is in a bay called Bahia Coyote, which is in another bay called Bahia Concepcion, which is in the Sea of Cortez....so we are in a cove in a bay in a bay in a sea. We stopped in a beautiful bay on the way here called San Juanico (SJ) and spent three nights there. So many things have happened since leaving Loreto that I don´t know where to start. I´ll give a quick rundown and will go into more details later. I got into my first argument with a fellow cruiser while anchoring in SJ, homie didn´t seem to think that the 200 feet seperating us was enough room. Lucky for me that several other criuisers in the anchorage went to bat for me thru the VHF radio and the guy has now turned into a kinda joke among those of us working our way up the sea. We attended our first bonfire/clambake on the beach in SJ. I was given some fishing advice while at the bonfire and I caught my first fish within minutes of deploying the new system. I fileted the little sucker the next day and Bob and I had a fish appetizer before happy hour. We have now seen our first Whale Sharks (pic). Whale Sharks are the largest fish on the planet and can grow to 60 feet. So far the ones that slowly and silently swim around the cove we´re in are only about 25-30 feet long. Whale Sharks are harmless and as soon as they come around again I plan on swimming with them. We are getting ready to head back to Si Bon and are going to move Si Bon to another cove in Bahia Coyote tomorrow. I hope we will have better internet access there and once I do I´ll go into more details and hopefully will be able to add some pics.
