Back in Bahia de La Paz area

After Puerto Escondido, we headed up to Puerto Ballandra on Isla Carmen. A nice anchorage, but we found ourselves bashing to get there. After a couple of days, we decided it was time to turn around and head south. We spent another couple of enjoyable days in Agua Verde, then headed down to Isla San Jose. We had hoped to sail but lost the wind after 9 miles of sailing. We made it to Isla San Jose where we spent the night behind the beach at Mangle Solo -- reasonably calm.

Next morning -- yesterday -- awoke to freshening northwesterly winds. Put the sails up proceeded to have a rollicking sail in 20-25 kn winds all the way to El Cardonal on Isla Partida. 33 nm sailed, averaging 6.4 knots. The radio was alive with "these winds weren't forecast" etc... great winds for us but not for the many trying to head north.

We will be back at Marina Palmira in La Paz by Sunday.
