SANTA ROSALITA, BAJA

Have to hole up in this copper mining town while a northerly blows through. Winds got up to 44 knots yesterday & today.  Trying to get across the Sea of Cortez to San Carlos on the mainland where we'll decomission the boat for the season.

ALONG THE BAJA CALIFORNIA SUD COASTLINE

Awoke at sunrise for a 10 hour "sail" to our next stop along the coast.  Ended up at Pulpita, unfortunately  a very rolly anchorage - not one of our better nights.

DAY TRIP INTO MISSION


Road into the interior of the Baja to see St. Javier Mission built in the 1600's by the Jesuits. Interesting desert scenery.

AT ANCHOR IN AGUA VERDE

Typical beach side restaurant- great fish tacos. Peter helping out Manuel. Rowed out to our boat with a broken engine & Peter fixed it! Manuel went away a happy camper.

SAILING ALONG THE BAJA COAST

Very rugged coastline, but beautiful.

LA PAZ, BAJA, MEXICO


La Paz has a beautiful malecon which went from Marina Palimar to the dowtown core. Interesting sculptures & murals.  We were there over Semana Santa which is one of the busiest weeks of the year.
