Puerto Lobos before dark…
Desemboque as we sail south
Wednesday evening April 20th
We’re still reeling from Bill’s quick departure this morning. We know it’s the best for him but he will be missed. We’re hopping to hear good news about his mother.. With his absence we’ve got plenty of provisions so we will eat hardy. Before he departed we also got a check-out on his Bug-A-Salt gun he planned on using for any unfortunate bug that came on board. It shoots kitchen salt like a rocket. Watch out bugs we’ve gat a Bug-A-Salt.
1ish Winds switched to the south as forecasted and we were able to shut one engine down and make 6+ with a light engine kicker.. Tides started working in our favor and our Lobos arrival improved from 9:30 to 7:30 when we actually made the south bay of Lobos.
The fishing boat below must have been cleaning a massive amount of fish. As you can see there are birds everywhere and if you look closely sea lions are working the boat also.
Sea life is teaming everywhere as we made the final approach to Lobos
Sunset and Moon rise
Jeffrey and Lynnie are doing great and loving the day as it unfolded.
Wonderful light as we pass the Lobos light house. Lots of fishing boats returning to Lobos after sunset and of course no Nav light. One boat pulled up and showed us his catch, 4 huge yellowtails. Our stores are loaded so we didn’t try to pickup fresh fish..
Right.. A gift for Gato Loco from Lynnie and Jeffrey. Copper mugs that hold cold temp it seems forever. We’re drinking Moscow Mules in them tonight before dinner.
Anchor report.. Letting the anchor down and backing down we were jarred ad the chain went taunt and the anchor stuck immediately. Sand bottom she works great.
All good in Lobos and they now have power and internet here. We’re heading south to Isla Tiburon Thursday.
Until the next Update.
Jeffrey and Lynne,
Beautiful! Missing being down there and seeing you guys pull in! Looks like a gorgeous day/evening. Have fun!
Hope Ted is doing well
Sorry to hear about Bill’s and him not being an this cruise. What great timing on your arrival. Cindy and I leaving Loreto next Thursday, guess we will just miss you guys. Have a great trip!
It’s always fun to watch your posts. Safe journeys!
Looks like a great start to a fun trip for the 3 Amigos! Hopefully Bill can get some wind in his mom’s sails 🙂
Ah, here you go again. Looks marvelous. I hope Bill’s mother is well soon.
Wow, the views are incredible! Another round of Mules please…
You are looking good…have fun! Karen
