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.
We have seen a lot of dolphins on this trip, and we hope to for the rest of our days. We love them. But this one day, when we were a day out from Cabo, we were surrounded and entertained by the most playful display of dolphin shenanigans we’ve ever seen.
We came into Scorpion Bay and the town San Juanico at two in the morning under the light of a full moon. It was our first time entering an unknown anchorage at night. A bit nerve racking but it worked out.
The amazing wildlife that Baja is famous for includes the large Eastern population of the North Pacific Grey Whales. They travel down to Mexico to spend the winter months mating, giving birth, and rearing their newborns.
