Baja 2006 April 29th - May 19th

May 3rd-4th

May 4th, Thurs 8:30, sunny skies, Bill's B-day, winds out of the N at 7 as we motor sail north out of Conception Bay... Did I say Bill's B-day? It's truly a double nickel day for him.

What have we been up to??

We spent last Tuesday night anchored in Mulege and took Vicki in for a quick tour of the village making the mandatory stops at Hotel Seriendad to get a Cab, local Mex restaurant for Margs, I-Cafe, prison museum and mercado before heading back to Gato Loco for sunset. Finished the night with dinner at El Patron on the beach near our anchorage.

Mulege river and estuary anchorage

El Patron

We headed for Conception Bay very early Wed to clear the Mulege channel reef. Weather cool, damp with low clouds and light winds from the N allowing us to sail quietly into Conception. Another short leg today allowing lot of "on mexican time", snorkeling, exploring islands and beaches.

Winds back up to 18 in the afternoon

Of course we had to have dinner at Ray's on SantaPac beach last night. Dinner was exceptional as always. On the photo of dinner above at 12 oclock is Vicki's bacan wrapped shrimp, at 3 is Bill breaded Fish, at 6 is Lowell's breaded scallops & at 10 is Frankie's Coco shrimp and with sauces to die for.... Plus Kahlua rice pudding (Chris & Beth your drooling)...

Bill is having a great B-day!!

A 50 mile day today, hopefully anchoring in San Jaunaico Bay.

Until the next update… The Gato Loco Crew
