We recognized the names of several boats at this tree in Caleta San Juanico, where passing yachties leave their momentos. We found everything from a poem written on a pair of shorts to very elaborately made works of art. It reminded us of the boardwalk at Hot Springs Cove on Vancouver Island, where we left Liberte's name in one of the wooden planks.
Osprey at Caleta San Juanico12/26/2010
These osprey have a priceless piece of real estate, on top of this crazy rock formation in one of the prettiest bays we've seen. Rebecca said "If I were a girl osprey, I'd pick that nest." We wondered if any of these osprey are snowbirding down from Coeur d'Alene.
Isla Coyote cactus12/26/2010
There are more than 300 species of cactus in the Sonoran desert - makes you pay attention when you're out for a hike in the flip-flops.
This is our morning view in Playa Coyote, where some of the palapa owners have made pretty elaborate dwellings, complete with thatched roofs, front decks, and yard sculptures.
Birds of Playa Coyote12/26/2010
One rock here has 12 or so resident species of birds, including the ospreys nesting at the top. The pelicans were hitting the water for their breakfast all around our kayaks - driving Sammy crazy.
