After leaving Puerto Escondido on May 11th we headed out to the islands and anchorages around PE and Loreto. The weather was still perfect with calm, clear, warm water. This is our favorite area in the Sea of Cortez. No towns, no wifi, no phone service. Just beautiful anchorages and beaches, lots of sea life, and beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
First stop was Honeymoon Cove on Isla Danzante where we spent several days.
Anna (with Mike, Kathy, Kent and Luis on board) caught up with us there for a day.

Dolphins came for a visit every evening.
Then to Bahia Salinas on Isla Carmen where Wildfower joined us, back to Candeleros Bay, Isla Coronados, and then Punta Mangles where we had the anchorage to ourselves.
