Another breezy day for Frankie’s
birthday. Winds quieted last night but were back up by 9:30 this
morning as we sailed out of San Carlos. Our destination was Bahia
San Padro. Wind on our nose at 20kts and 5 foot seas made for a rough
ride. Neely was a bit nervous (an under statement) so we opted to
head in to Bahia Algodones where Club Med use to be near the Catch
22 beach just 5 miles out of San Carlos. Checking out the anchorage
near Club Med we found flat water but very exposed to north winds
that continued to build. Not as I planed for Frankie’s birthday.
We decided to make it easy on all of us and head back to Martini
cove at the entrance for San Carlos outer bay. Winds hitting 25 and
it’s only 11 AM. Gato Loco surfing as we head down wind hitting 12kts
running down the face of waves. This is fun compared to pounding
in to these waves and everybody is smiling including Neely.
Martini cove is totally sheltered and we went
into the relax mode after an exhilarating morning. Beach combing,
and great dinner tonight. Just what the birthday girl wanted. By
the way, Neely is doing fine and is enjoying the boat lounging.
