Baja Anchorages................

Central Baja is our favorite cruising area in Mexico. We were lucky enough to have many anchorages to ourselves this season!
Candeleros Chico:



Pyramid Cove, Isla Danzante:

There were LOTS of pelicans diving on the HUGE sardine "bait ball".  
The local fishermen were also after the sardines.....
their survival rate must be pretty small.


Punta Colorada, Isla Carmen:
We were anchored here with our friend, Steve,
on Pacific. A resident pod of dolphins came by
in the mornings.







Bahia Marquer, Isla Carmen:

Back in Agua Verde

This is a video of L-L heading up San Jose Channel from Isla San Francisco to Puerto Los Gatos. Wind and current were with us!
From Mazatlan we spent one night crossing the Sea of Cortez to Muertos, one night in Muertos, one night in Isla San Francisco, one night in Los Gatos before we dropped the anchor in Agua Verde where we  stayed for two weeks.


José also has a new dog named Mocha. She's very friendly, but not a retriever. We found a tennis ball and threw it to her from the dinghy, but she didn't have a clue what to do with it:


The restaurant run by the "Sociedad Cooperativa Punta Pasquel" is getting better all the time. The fish tacos are the best and the chile rellenos and chicken mole are also great. The tortillas are the best around!


Taxco

The town of silver and volkswagons..... We had both been here (separately) about 50 years ago. it has not changed much. We DID buy some silver jewelry, but  there is soooo much that it's a bit overwhelming.


Taxco is a beautiful city with steep and narrow cobblestone streets.



The day we left we took a taxi to the bus station to wait for our bus to Mexico City. It was Ash Wednesday and there was this never ending parade of trucks full of people all being bombarded with water balloons. The bus couldn't make it to the station so we had to take a very crowded collectivo up to Hotel Misión where the bus was waiting for us. There is never a dull moment when traveling in Mexico.
We are leaving Mazatlán tomorrow 4/23/18 to head
back over to Baja.
