Ohh what a life

20 March 2011 | Bahia Los Frailes
Its amazing that I actually have internet access in this beautiful little bay, which is located almost at the Tropic of Cancer.
We left the Marina at Puerto Los Cabos yesterday at about 1045 and as predicted in all of my cruising guides, we soon began to feel the effects of the Sea of Cortez, we had the wind right on our nose and about half way here we ran into fetch, short, steep waves which have come down the 600 mile sea, we motored all the way and dropped the hook (anchor) at about 1645. On the way we witnessed so many whales that the yell from the crew "whale" became a common occurrence. Upon arriving is this peaceful anchorage we were at first treated to dozens of manta rays, many of them babies, flying out of the water as they played like little puppy dogs of the sea. As the sun started sinking the partially clouded sky started turning the most amazing colors any of us had ever seen, (and we've already seen many awesome sunsets), the entire sky put a show that you can only truly appreciate if you were here in person to witness. Just when it appeared that the sky show was about to end someone turned around and yelled "oh my God, look at that" and there was a full moon rising through the same light cloud cover that made the sunset so beautiful, it was like an encore of the heavens. We all marveled at how blessed we were to be here, a place that the word paradise doesn't even begin to describe.
I am currently not able to post pictures but will catch up when we have better internet service.

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
