Sail Away

Geo, Boyo, and I finally made it onto Sea Sirena, our Cal 34, for two relaxing weeks of sailing, swimming, fishing, diving, hiking and general lolling about reading, playing cards, rope tying, or napping.  The weather in La Paz, Mexico when we headed out the channel was in the 90s.  On the water it was heaven, just right for everything except sailing...very, very little wind.  So we motored the first day out to our anchorage between Isla Partida and Isla Espiritu Santo. Sailboats don't motor or sail very fast; in fact, you have to be a patient person of the earth in order to enjoy sailing.  But we are so happy to be here.

The Captain takes us out the l-o-n-g channel from La Paz, Mexico into the Sea of Cortez.

The lady takes her turn at the motoring helm.

Geo watches for signs of sea life.

Our first dolphin sighting!

Our anchorage between the two islands included about seven other boats under the sky blue pink clouds of sunset.

  1. Great post, loving hearing about your time on the sea. That sunset is incredible. You both look like official captains to me!
