Black beaches

24 February 2012
Haven't walked all the beaches here yet just a small part of them. They are all black beaches from the mine leavings dumped along the coast. But on our short little jaunt, we did find a nice piece of aqua sea glass!

The pangeros are quiet here unless they decide to go around us for fun (we're the only ones anchored here currently). We don't even notice the ferry or other transport boats when they come into dock unless we happen to be looking out.

Sadly enough the new marinas of the singlars/fortunas whatever they are being called now are charging crazy prices and everyone is leaving those marinas if they can. There's only 3 boats in the one here and they have over 20 slips empty. We just heard from someone who just came from Guaymas that it's 500 pesos a day to be in a slip, and that was for a 30 something ft boat! What are they thinking? All of those we have seen have almost no boats in their slips. Hopefully someone starts using their brains soon.

Though the boating community wishes he'd stick with Phil (there's too many Jim's and we haven't met one [...]
