Boys Trip 1.0 - LaPaz to Isla San Jose

So Nancy is off at "band camp".  Sounds like a perfect opportunity for a boys trip in the Sea of Cortez.
My brother-in-law JD is my compadre for the adventure.This is the first leg of our trip.  Stay tuned for the next installment.
Here is a photo of JD and me.  I'm the one on the right.

Isla Coronado is one of the most picturesque anchorages around.  Muy Bonita.



Finding Isla Coronado is more difficult at night.  An osprey had constructed a nest on the solar panel and in front of the navigation light.

A tremendous collection of beach treasures are kept in this old building on Isla San Jose.
The structure are part of ruins from an old salt mining operation.

People and goats in boats  It is the way of things in San Evaristo

This bolt should be firmly attached to the top of the main furler.  It snapped (corroded).  No more mainsail for this trip.
Jib and spinnaker until we can make repairs back in La Paz.

Paddle boards were great for getting ashore.  This may be the last photo of the Uli board (foreground).  More on that later.

Now THAT is a nice looking cactus.

Cactus get big!
