North in the Sea

Everyone gone now except Barb and I, we departed north in the Sea of Cortez. We had no agenda and were in no rush. We were headed generally to Isla San Jose when we ran across this interesting sight.

It looks like a small fishing village on a tiny island. The island was about the size of a football field with a half dozen houses and a few pongas out front. I can help but wonder how they get power and water and basic supplies. Seems like a fun place to live but a tough existence.

The sea was perfectly calm, so after 6 hours of travel we called it a day and anchored behind Isla San Jose. It was a beautiful place.

This was not a protected anchorage, but it did not matter, the seas were flat.

We had a nice dinner and a good night sleep and woke up with no plan other than coffee.
