Before we came here we were in Bahia Candeleros. This was a very open bay not protected from most winds. The only resident occupant was an Eco Resort on one end. We had a great time exploring the beach, and when we got back to the boat we snorkeled for Chocolate Clams. The water is now 75 degrees so it is comfortable. Chocolate clams are brown both on the outside and the inside as well. We didn't get too many, but what we got were great. We only spent one night there, being anchored in 10 ft of water makes me a little uncomfortable but we had a great time.
On our trip up from La Paz we anchored in Ensenada Grande on Isla Partida. This was a new place for us. We choose the wrong anchorage out of the 3 available and spent the whole night bobbing in the wind and waves. There were two other anchorages in the same bay that would have been much better.
The next night we spent anchored in Isla San Francisco. This is a small volcanic island, and we were anchored right in the bowl of the volcano. I wished we would have done more exploring of the island, but I cleaned our whole bottom instead. Next time we will explore more.
The next couple of nights we anchored in Evaristo and Agua Verde. We have been to both places before, and it was nice to be back. At that point we were on a fast pace to get to Loreto for the Fest.
Hope all is well for everyone and we are looking forward to cinco de Mayo in Mexico.
