R&R at Bahia Marquer, Isla Carmen
07 April 2018 | Bahia Marquer, Isla Carmen
Since wrapping up the Kitty Round up at the end of March we have been extremely lucky to have some perfect weather for enjoying one of our favorite nearby anchorages: Marquer.
It's usually reserved for the summer months, or at least late May because its exposed to northerly winds which usually still prevail this time of year, but as with weather everywhere this year nothing is following the rules. For us it has been a nice treat.
So for the most part we've been enjoying swimming, snorkeling, watching dolphin, pelicans and even a whale go by. Beautiful sunrises, sunsets and even a full Blue Moon have rounded out our days.
We traveled up to Loreto one day and anchored off town one night to be in a safe spot during some predicted high westerly winds (that might not have been the best in Marquer) and while there we got to meet up with friends from Sol Seeker and Prairie Oyster who were in town doing provisioning while their boats were in Puerto Escondido.
Enjoyed time with Al & Sharon of Solona who were also anchored off Loreto that day, and then again when they found their way down to Marquer the next day.
We made another one night trip into Puerto Escondido so we could join friends at Pepegina's restaurant as other friends entertained us with great music! Tony & George put on a great show and a good time was had by all!
