Continued Journey up the Sea of Cortez

We have had five days of good sailing, fish catching and beautiful days and sunsets.  We left Isla San Francisco after two nights and headed north to Mangle Solo for a comfortable anchorage, Timbabeche (just south of Los Gatos), and back to Mangle Solo (near the lighthouse) because of the north winds.  

We caught a dorado on the way into our anchorage and had two nights of good eatin’!

I took advantage of a little nap on top of the paddle boards.  This was my view.  :)  Not bad, eh?

We had great wind and everyone seemed happy on our sail up north in the Sea.

We had a pretty paddle in our anchorage at Timbabeche.  Manuel, a local fisherman, sold us a Cabrillo (spotted grouper) so we were set for dinners for a few nights!

We have really been lucky with the wind.  We had a light day when we had to head north and strong winds from the north when we had to head south.  

Back in Mangle Solo, Mike and I had our daily paddle and did a little hike to a bay tucked behind the channel.  Here are some shots.

Sunset at Mangle Solo...never disappoints

I love the sunset with the cactus
