Circumnavigating Isla Carmen
07 March 2020
While we didn't anchor in every bay on the big island (that to me looks like a seahorse) we did circle the island and explored anchorages on the North, East, South and West!
It was made possible by the unusual wind patterns we've had lately with winds switching around the clock every 2 to 3 days. Our final stop after leaving Bahia Salinas was one of our all time favorites: Bahia Marquer on the West side of the island.
We only spent one night there -- and it was a very peaceful night -- but looking at the weather forecast for the week ahead convinced us to head back to the barn and grab a buoy in Puerto Escondido. This time it wasn't changing winds that had us on the move, but rather a gloomy forecast of clouds and rain. We'd rather spend that in port visiting with friends if we weren't going to be able to enjoy hiking and swimming.
So now we will spend a week or so enjoying the benefits of civilization -- meals out and nice hot showers as we prepare and provision for our next big outing in The Sea.
