Agua Verde 4/30/12 - 5/3/12
08 May 2012 | Sea of Cortez
Nothing too new to report, except that it’s getting HOT in the sea! Agua Verde is another great place to hang out in the water, maybe venture out for another hike if anyone has the energy, explore some caves, or go find the small tienda for some provisioning…..after school and daily chores of course. So that is what we did for three days. We swam & hung out in the water hammocks, kayaked, hiked, explored the beaches and tide pools, ventured into their little community, which is beautifully cared for. I was impressed with the tienda! They had everything we needed, most importantly, produce and cold beer!
Sydney and I slept out in the cockpit for two nights. Well, one night for me as my bed is too comfortable to leave. On the first night as we laid there looking at the stars, telling stories, we heard a whale swimming in our small cove, blowing out air and making a crazy, eerie, moaning sound. We couldn’t see him but we heard him! The next morning, two other boats shared they had the same experience, one being my friend Diane on Harmony. Pretty cool.
As the weekend approached, this popular anchorage began to clear out as most boaters moved on north to enjoy the goings on at Loreto Fest. Over 100 boats gather for this annual 4 day event held outside Loreto in Puerto Escondido. We chose to skip the festivities this year and explore a few surrounding anchorages. We look forward to visiting Loreto after the dust settles, sometime next week. In the meantime, it’ll be just more of the same. Our next stop is Bahia Candeleros. We’ve heard great things….
