The Clan, as we are now calling our group of 4 boats, us, "Capricorn Cat", "Bristol Blue" and "Allegria" all left the anchorage around 6:30 am, when it was light enough to see well.
There was some good sized leftover lump and seas from yesterday afternoon's winds, but still quite comfortable.
We did have a close encounter with a whale.
And a great dolphin show.
Now we are motoring up the lee side of Isla Cedros and will anchor in the North anchorage for the afternoon and evening.
Plans are to head North again at some weird un-civilized hour of the morning and head to Bahia San Carlos, some 80 miles to weather.
The North end of the island gets a lot of wind, swells and mixed seas.
This is the spot all of our already further North friends have gotten hammered, including "Vela" who is about a day ahead of us.
BUT, I have said my prayers to the Weather God and remember we saved that turtle last summer?
So all should be well.
I have good internet connection here and two
Internet connection ~ Eric, the Mexican cell phone company, Telcel sells a unit called "3G". Anywhere you show 2-3 bars on your Mexican cell phone, you can get internet. The cost was a few hundred US total for these few months, but we can use the unit later and/or sell it to some friends headed South. Worth every peso to me... I like to be able to email my Mommy, update my blog for my three readers and have recently gotten addicted to Facebook (better than other addiction I could have...). And WEATHER!!! Worth every peso to be able to check all the weather sites. Also we have a big antenna we use at some places. Jim can fill you in on all the details when we sit on your mooring in Newport Beach, right? Ha ha!
Socks ~ Yes, Jomamma I am now wearing socks!! I have been for days. And you want to know the cool thing about socks? If you gain or lose weight, they still fit!!
Photos ~ I will load photos eventually, but checking weather is more important to Jim (and me) right now. And by not loading photos now, I keep you in suspense...
