Goodbye Baja

Our last days and nights on the Mexican Baja were spent in the anchorage of Los Frailes.  We thought it would be a quiet, pretty anchorage with time to rest and reflect on our voyages to date. 
The days were spent snorkeling, swimming, walking w/ fellow sailors on the beach and progressive boat parties culminating in fantastic dinners both nights.  The first night on Shindig we shared our fresh yellowfin sashimi grade tuna with a couple.  The second night we were guests aboard our friends' Hylas 42, Scot Free. Deb and John treated us to proscuitto cream based pasta, Italian mozzarella salads and limoncello for dessert.  There are some impressive restauranteurs amongst the cruisers! 
We spent the last day recuperating from all the socializing and getting ready for our sail (motor) across the Sea of Cortez to the Mainland (Mazatlan)

According to this chart, SV Shindig is on land! This is common in Mexico as the charts are not super accurate.
The marina Puerto Del Cabo didn't exist when these charts were published.



Nancy busted out a cake for dinner with the Camelot crew.
Bahia Los Frailes...Beautiful!

Shindig is attacked by night butterflies.
Rob staged a successful catch and release campaign.  The butterflies were taunted but not injured.

    1. Hi Kaaren,
      The photo angle makes me look about 20 lbs less than I am. Even my mom sent me a message warning me of anorexia. (Thanks Mom). I am doing great, and healthy.
      Love, Nancy
