Less than a mile motor into Playa Coyote - all of it on land according to the chart plotter. Photo is of one of our “rides” into Mulege – crazy!!

Playa Santispac to Playa Coyote

Bruce & Gina Senay & Gibson
After six weeks in Playa Santispac (our longest anchorage in eight years!) we made the short jump (3 miles) to Playa Coyote to meet up with John and Susie (s/v Emmy). Coyote is a quiet anchorage with both lovely homes and RV’s on the shoreline. Susie and I explored the bay kayaking and I baked cinnamon rolls –plus lots of reading and napping aboard DreamCatcher!

Happy birthday Big Dog!!! Bruce celebrated his birthday with a beach bonfire party – good food, friends and chocolate cupcakes with purple icing! A special birthday surprise was our friends Paul and Gena (s/v Scarlet Fever) who sailed in for the party - blessed!

Well, its time to start up the watermaker – we have had it pickled for the last four years (I know, I know, but we skip in and out of marinas so have been able to fill the water tanks either at a fuel stop or marina stay). It wasn’t a fun project! Bruce labored five long days and was finally able to get it running at half capacity (20 gph). We are awaiting parts to get it up to full speed (40 gph). Super thankful!! We have started back watching the Andy Stanley series “Follow” – Jesus invites everyone to follow Him. When transition, trouble or temptation cause you to question your faith – you’ve got to ask “if not Jesus, who? If not Christianity, what?”.
John 6:69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the holy one of God.

Hard to believe how long we’ve been here, but we’re loving this bay! It is a great anchorage for the northerlies with two beach restaurants and the town of Mulege a short 13 miles away (we go a couple of times a week for wifi and lunch, so we’re getting really good at hitchhiking). This beach is also a very popular RV park – lots of rigs lining the waterfront. Laundry is picked up on Monday mornings on the beach and the veggie truck visits Friday morning – it’s the small things in life! We also met a really fun couple, Susie and John (s/v Emmy) and have been exploring the area with them – God is good. Our time here has also included a ride into Loreto to replace our propane tank and one gas can (and of course a coffee drink!), hiking, hotsprings, kayaking, and sketching – blessed!

Bahia Santo Domingo to Playa Santispac

Bruce & Gina Senay & Gibson
We made the short one hour motor into Santispac’s northern anchorage and was surprised to see lots of RV’s parked around the shoreline and two beach restaurants! There were a dozen other boats in the anchorage as strong northerly winds were predicted for the next few days.

Los Algodones to Bahia Santo Domingo (Bahia Concepcion)

Anchors up at 6:30 am for an easy 13.5 hour motor sail across the Golfo to Santo Domingo. We entered just after dark – with a wide-open anchorage and a previous visit, no problem!

Bahia San Carlos to Los Algodones

03 February 2019
Bruce & Gina Senay & Gibson
We motored just around the corner to the anchorage of Los Algodones to wait on wind to make the crossing to Bahia Concepcion. Had a lovely farewell lunch with sweet friends Kim and Jeff (s/v Damiana) at Soggy Pesos to say adios - till we meet again!

San Carlos Marina to Bahia San Carlos

01 February 2019
Bruce & Gina Senay & Gibson
Whew! What an exhausting passage! After three months in San Carlos (we were only aboard one of those) we motored five minutes from the marina to the bay to spend a couple of days getting back in anchoring mode. We enjoyed our time in San Carlos – found a wonderful Church (Agape), made new friends, reconnected with old friends, had the bottom done on DreamCatcher, found a great Greek restaurant, went to a cow plop, took the bus from Hermosillo to Tucson (and back) and I learned how to make overnight cinnamon rolls (thank you Hannah)! God was good!

San Carlos

25 January 2019
Our marina is in a lovely bay with Cerro Tetakawi off our bow – we hiked Tetakawi today (1,200’) with friends Barb, Myra and Bill. One and a half hours up, and one and a half hours down (lots of bottom sliding and wobbly legs!). If any of you have seen the 1970 movie Catch 22, Cerro Tetakawi is in the background for many of the airfield shots. Gorgeous 360 degree views - thank you Lord! Hoping to depart San Carlos Friday, February 1st for the passage back to the Baja side, hiding out in Concepcion Bay until the strong northerly fronts end.
