We are working our way to the northern part of the Sea of Cortez. There are some amazing anchorages, delightful small towns and have made some great friends along the way. Loreto is one of my favorite towns and I hope it doesn't turn into a tourist mecca like Cabo San Lucas. It has the oldest missions in the country and the locals work really hard to keep the town clean and quaint. We spent the 4th of July at El Burro cove in Bahaia Concepcion. Geary, who does the weather reports on a daily basis on the Sonrisa net, provided hot dogs and there were at least 20 cruising boats that showed up. Right now we are at a marina in Santa Rosalia. The first marina we've been in for a month. Jeff is hosing the boat off with all that fresh dock water. Stryder gets pretty salty and dirty between marinas. Santa Rosalia is a working man's town. In 1886 copper was discovered in the nearby hills and a French company moved in and ran it until the mid 1940's. It is now ran by a Mexican company. There are a lot of French influences including a church that was designed by the same designer of the
Eiffel Tower. There is a small swimming pool here at the marina and we are spending the hot afternoons there. This is the last place for us to get provisions before going further north. There will be only small tiendas and little to no cell service and sketchy wifi. We now have an air conditioner that works off our generator as it's going to be hot in the coming weeks. Hurricane season is upon us and doesn't end until October/November. We are safest up in the Sea. We get daily forecasts on the single side band to determine what might be "brewing in the tropical kitchen". If a hurricane is headed our way we have several days to prepare. The chances of a hurricane coming up this far are very rare.

Loreto Anchrage

Loreto

14 June 2016 | Loreto
We are anchored off the town of Loreto in an open road stead. It's been very calm and a good anchorage so far. We are slowly making our way up into the Gulf of California to hopefully escape any Hurricanes that travel up into the gulf this summer. It's starting to get a little hotter now, in the 90's most days.

Puerto Vallarta to !a Paz

14 April 2016 | La Cruz Marina
We are leaving to go back to La Paz today. It's about a 360 nm trip. We need to get north up into the Gulf of California before hurricane season starts. We are going to roast on an ocean of fire this summer! I hope we can make it.

Keep your arms and legs inside the boat. There could be a brute lurking just under the water.
