2006 April 29th - May 19th
14th Mother's Day
turned out to be a very light wind day requiring us to motor sail
all day to arrive in Bahia San Sabastian 4ish. This is a little
oasis with about 20 homes, mostly americans. A fresh water spring
feeds lots of vegetation especially Palm trees. I was last here 3
years ago and there seems to be lots of home improvements which requires
hauling lots of materials over bad road to this remote location 60
miles from anywhere. I added San Sabastian on the map to give you
One of the homes is kind enough
to have an open wireless satellite internet connection so we spent
some time on the boat catching up on emails and internet fill before
meet the neighbors.
Immediately landing on shore we picked
the local tour guide, Tipie the local dog who escorted us as we walked
back in the canyon and then through the neighborhood. She was a good
friend of everybody we met & jumped on a wall to give Steve kisses
Gato Loco from
Brian's house view of the bay looking north. He lives here full
time except when visiting family. Hurricane Marty sent a wave surge
though his house which is very nice open air palm thatched roof 3
bedroom home. We meet folks from 6 of the homes some offering fish,
drinks and places to sleep if we wanted to get off the boat. They
were watching a shrimp like fishing boat anchored near their bay
and said they planed
on reporting the boat to Mexican Game&Fish because it was a net
bottom dragger that tears up the local reefs which apparently is
evening with wind from shore down the canyon. Light clouds this morning
made us get up early to enjoy the sunrise.
Cool Change anchored with us
overnight had folks from Colorado which Steve estimated as ski bums
relaxing after ski season. They had two dogs on board that Frankie
would have enjoyed.
3:30PM and we are sailing into Conception
Bay. Winds have been up and down many times over the past 2 hours.
More like lake sailing, blowing 18 and then nothing. Steve is washing
windows as we turn towards Coyote Bay, Good Crew!!
Report for Bill & Vicki
we caught and cooked lunch, 20 incher??
I'm doing my best to carry on with the fishing action after Bill left the
boat. Bought a new Darado lure in Loreto and hoping for the big one..
Vicki, I almost used your tabouli while fixing fish for lunch.
