Loreto Fest & Final days for Leg 1
Thursday, May 2nd
Windy day blows us to Puerto Escondido sail only, A perfect way to finish our 11 day sail from Penasco.
Another leg completed successfully.
Singlar marinas seem to be in trouble. No gas on the dock here in Escondido either. Filled with water we headed to the restaurant to meet friends. Craig & Linda our dock mates in Penasco were the first friends we see. Soon we find that friends MoonDrifter and Dream Catcher are in the new marina back in the canals behind the Singlar waterfront. Nice new marina just coming online. No power yet but docks are beautiful. Their asking $1 per/ft BUT we soon found out the our width they want $2/ft and we finally negotiate a price of $1.50. Our first night in port we treat the crew to dinner at the Trupi restaurant. Scallops and Veracruz fish were excellent.

Jeffrey & Lynnie make it to the excellent crew level fully washing down Gato Loco while Craig and I escape and visit the Loreto Fest swap meet. Thanks for that.
Clean boat and I scored a gift for Frankie. A good morning start to Loreto Fest.
Helen found a perfectly fitting wetsuit.
I attended a CPR update class taught by the local Loreto paramedics.
Later in the evening the crew enjoys happy hour on DreamCatcher.
There’s always good meals and fun times at Pedro’s Porta Bello restaurant on the Singlar dock.
Saturday, May 4th
Hard to believe that leg 1 has come to a end as Craig, Lynnie and Jeffery leave the boat Saturday morning. Craig is flying to LA today. Lynnie and Jeffrey head to Loreto to enjoy an evening and dinner at the historic old restaurant on the east side of the Mission (forgot the name). They made reservations while we visited Loreto on Wednesday during our visit. Left they toast to an excellent cruise. during their dinner. 🙂
It’s been an excellent leg with a great crew. Thank you for a very memorable voyage. AND Craig’s fun music…
Until the next Update…
