Arriving at Isla Coronados we pretty much motored the 17 miles from San Juanico. The Coronados anchorage has been one of my favorites anchorages but it now has a bee problem making it a challenge unless you have a screened in area (so sad). The plan was to have happy hour on JollyDogs but they soon had 100s of bees so we headed to the NBA (No Bee Area) boat MoonDrifter who anchored further out. Nice evening but I’m having problems with the internet that distracts me from taking pictures and enjoying the late evening.
Thursday May 12th
The plan today is to continue sailing south with the Isla Carmen’s Marquer anchorage on our sites. We get to pass Loreto and pick more ice and then on to the Clam Shack (Vista Al Mar) for a late lunch. Winds are much better today with a sail only passage to Loreto and a nice motor sail to Clam Shack. The Shack’s drinks and food are good as always although they didn’t have any clams. They said they were the Shrimp Shack today. Winds teased us while we ate and soon we hit the dinghies to get under way for the 7 mile broad reach to the Marquer anchorage with JollyDogs working to catch us. Today they smoked by with winds more favorable for them. As the day unfolded clouds continued to roll in and finally a rainbow in our anchorage.
Another Rally fellowship night with happy hour on JollyDogs while we watched the best sunset I’ve seen of this season.
We have the Marquer anchorage to ourselves with just us 4 Seawinds. I didn’t mention we bid Barry and Sue goodbye in the San Juanico anchorage and we’re now 4 cats sailing together.
Another awesome day.
Until the next Update
