LA PAZ, BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR


Arrived safe & sound in La Paz where we planned on being for Christmas.  Really enjoying the area.

GATO

This is a very pretty anchorage, but a little too rolly for us, so just spent the night & then left for better protection.

LORETO

Christmas time in Loreto. Rented a car & drove to the quaint little town of Loreto.

PUERTO ESCONDIDO

We had quite the ride into Puerto Escondido,  but once in, very protected from the waves (but not the winds - 42 knts of them!!)

BAHIA CONCEPTION & SAN JUANICO

We spent 4 days in beautiful Conception Bay & then moved on to San Juanico, another bay protected from the ever present northerlies. We are getting some wonderful sails from the northerlies though!

SANTA ROSALIA, BAJA SUR


Left the mainland & did a 10 hour sail to the Baja Penisula. Santa Rosalia is a very unique Mexican town. There's zero tourism here & it's very much a working class town relying on the copper mine. Not the prettiest of places, but wonderful people & so different from what we're used to. Really enjoyed it here!
