We left Santa Rosalia and started our journey back down the sea. We were greeted by dolphins as we left, which is such a gift.  About an hour later, Mike spotted a pod of pilot whales right off our bow.  I was able to take a nice video to share.  Sorry about the up and's tricky to be on a moving base.

We had to motor sail until the early afternoon, when we got some really nice sailing in.

We arrived in the Punta Chivato anchorage to happily find many friends: Terry and Heidi on Cetus, Dianne and Jim on Prairie Oyster and Jim and Kathy on Solar Flair.

We got a nice sunset paddle in and made our way to say hello to everyone.

We made enmolades for dinner tonight.  I think they were better than the ones we had in Loreto.

Grateful for today,

First Mate Kate
