Today I moved down to Puerto Viejo a remote anchorage south of Santa Rosalia. It feels good to get out of the marina and back out on the water and into an anchorage. This anchorage is not much to talk about. ItÂ's on the south end of Isla San Marcos , a small island where they have an open Gypsum mine. Luckily the wind was blowing from the north east so the anchorage isnÂ't dusty, just a little rolly. I wanted to check it out as a possible staging stop for my crossing over to San Carlos in about a week.
Turns out my friend Bill wonÂ't be able to come down after all. Looks like I get to single hand the final legs of my Mexico 2010/11 adventure. Should be fun.
I am headed back to Bahia Conception to explore more of the bays there. Talked to Blue Rode and Swift Current on the VHF this afternoon. They are spending the night at Santa Domigo and moving most likely to Santispac (in Bahia Conception), where I plan to meet them there tomorrow. It will be fun catching up and sharing more good times.
The pork chops are about done on the BBQ (love these long days!). Going to make another margarita and plan to get an early start tomorrow to Bahia Conception.
