Cetus is sailing again!
06 April 2019 | Isla Coronados
After many months in Marina Puerto Escondido we completed the boat projects and the chilly winter weather has warmed into Spring so we are off to enjoy the beautiful anchorages in the Sea of Cortez!
We were so happy to raise the mainsail and find no surprises — like bees or bats that sometimes will find refuge in the folds of a sail that’s been under wraps for many months. It felt great to put full sail up and turn off the engine and enjoy slipping through the water under wind power.
As the wind died and we were getting ready to motor in to our 1st destination (Bahia Marquer on Isla Carmen) Terry saw a lot of activity ahead and we were soon surrounded by flocks of Pelicans and other birds diving into the water and a huge pod of dolphin! And to top it off a lone whale also passed by! It was the perfect start to our little “vacation”.
We are now settled in for a few days at Isla Coronados to enjoy the swimming, snorkeling, hiking and kayaking that this small island has to offer.
So good to be back on the water again!
