Leaving Bahia de los Angeles and heading South on a beautiful day
On this passage we had our first ever visit from killer whales (orcas) – a group of 6-8 came to the boat and then soon left us again – WOW! At first, when I heard them spout behind us, I thought they were dolphins. Then I got a better look and those were some BIG dolphins!
Yet again, the expected wind didn’t arrive, so even on this short sail we motored for the last 2 hours to be sure to get there by sunset.
Maryanne occupied her time by making a second (much bigger) batch of Guacamole with provisions from Bahia de los Angeles – YUMMY lunch
Ensenada el Alacrán (Scorpion Cove) is well named since scorpions apparently abound there. Our guidebook told us to also expect yurts, and they were correct. When we arrived, the yurts seemed empty and we wondered if it was off season – but soon after, a panga full or wetsuit attired tourists arrived along with a couple of kayakers – as they landed ashore they each moved along to their respective yurts to clean up for dinner. We are not sure how they avoid the scorpions.. but we didn’t have to worry about them as we didn’t go ashore.
Anchoring by the Yurts!
The yurts are the accommodation of an eco-tourism camp/resort – pretty basic living (although they did have a generator)
