Tetas de Cabra
24 June 2011 | Bahia Algodones
Even with all of the gadgets aboard a modern cruising yacht, it is still nice to have a visual reference when coming into an unfamilar anchorage or port. As I was nearing the coast of Mainland Mexico on Tuesday, I noticed on my chart that there was a huge mountain located behind the exact spot that I wanted to drop my hook. The day was hazy and visibliity was probably less than 15 NM. Now I really do try to keep this family oriented blog clean, but every once in awhile I just can´t contain myself. Both my family and Sharon´s family follow my blog and I´m sure before long my blog will be required reading in most class rooms and I even heard that I may now have a Catholic Priest that checks in every once in awhile....never the less here goes. The name of the mountain is Tetas de Cabra, which translates to Goat teat peak. Now being a city boy, I have no idea what the teat of a goat looks like, and honestly I have no intention of finding out. If I were to guess, I would think that this is probably an accurate discription. I do know that as I was approaching Bahia Algodones, on a hazy day, that rising above the haze, sticking out like a....well like a sore teat..was Tetas de Cabra.
