Just as our surroundings started feeling like an oven set on broil (aka August) we made a last minute decision to head across the sea to the town of Guaymas on the mainland.
For the past eight years I have been blessed to work for the Reef Check Foundation’s California Program (RCCA) doing reef monitoring and protection, and marine education
From Candeleros you can gaze upon layers of uninhabited islands and so much wildlife that it seems to be overflowing because something is ALWAYS jumping out of the water.
Not surprisingly we don’t often have the ability to connect to the internet when we are exploring uninhabited desert islands.
We snuggled up into the southern cove of the Bahia Agua Verde next to our good friends on Sangvind and were quickly followed by our other good friends on Resolute. So began our 7 days in the most heavenly little bay, for what was hands down the best part of our trip so far.
Ok so we didn’t really go to mars but we did go Puerto Los Gatos, which is a cove surrounded by the most amazing red rocks.
Is this place real? If it wasn’t for the bees and the 104 degree F temperature I would think I was dreaming.
Orion was anchored off the north side of the tiny uninhabited island of San Francisco. No one was around but the two of us and some scary nesting seagulls.
So this Baja adventure has been good to us so far. But somehow it seems to be getting better. We are back at sea, roaming free as birds. And it feels good.
Being anchored off a busy city did not prevent the wild beauty of the sea from engulfing us. Jacques Cousteau once called La Paz the “Aquarium of the World” and I can see why.
