Gato Loco Northern Sea Fun part 1
Saturday May 4th
(Part 1 of our first photo blog was lost in Bay of LA cyber space and didn’t get published at that time)
We’re heading to Bay of LA today and time to use their internet to get a blog out. We sent a satellite blog on our crossing Penasco to the Gonzaga area. Check it out if you haven’t seen it. Below is a photo of the special treat we had on our crossing as a huge pod of hundreds of dolphins chased us down. Norman says 1500 dolphins There was lots of action on the bow at the front but the sea conditions didn’t allow us to go forward.
These pictures tell the story
The Wednesday crossing smoothed out as we approached Baja and the ladies could finally relax and enjoy some whale watching.
We spotted 6 fin whales about 15 miles out from Isla Pomo but we never got close enough to get a photo.
Overnight anchorage sunset on the southeast shore of Isla San Louis.
Thursday May 2nd
We’re back to Isla Pomo to explore. Below Gato Loco sets in the anchorage we hoped to use last night. Things are much calmer today allowing us to do some sea cave exploring.
Sea cave action. This cave goes back some 500 ft and gets pretty dark.

Exercise on the bow of Gato Loco
Lots of sea birds on the island.
Thursday night’s anchorage in front of the Alfonsina’s resort.
The resort is full of Harley riders who kept the bartender busy. As you can see the tides are still pretty strong here and there are 3 boats beached as we wake on Friday morning.

Been playing Hearts. Winds in Bay of LA reminded me of our trip.

Thanks Jane, We’ll keep them coming.
Sorry I haven’t commented before. Just been busy but not too busy to miss any of your postings. Looks wonderful! So jealous! Hope to see you and Frankie in Prescott this summer.
Barb, we were just in Prescott before the trip and thought of you guys. We order Ralph and Helen Rally shirts and told them they have to come to the cabin this summer. We’ll organize something. Have you heard from them recently?
