As Kook sailed south we headed north stopping first at Bahia Santa Domingo at the top of Bahia Conception and saw one of the most amazing sunsets. We even had some bars on our phones!
In Bahia Conception there are several anchorages but one of favorites was El Burro with a shore lined with small, colorful beach houses, many for American Ex Pats. One day we took a hike up a little mountain behind the beach.
While anchored in Puerto Don Juan in Bahia de Los Angeles we foraged for the local clams! They were abundant and delicious.
We sailed over to the pueblo at Bahia de Los Angeles and visited the most amazing little museum featuring shells and bones from thousands of sea critters and marine life. That afternoon we sailed up to Isla La Ventana to a beautiful but tight anchorage. It was calm and the sunset was awesome but we knew the wind was supposed to come up and change directions in the middle of the night.
We sailed east across the Sea stopping off at the barren Isla San Estaban to anchor on the south west corner. No person, building or boat as far as the eye could see...only birds and frolicking sea Lions.
We continued east to Isla Tiburon and spotted a couple very large whales, then sailed south stopping first at a small, isolated anchorage called Pozo Moreno. The stark beauty of the extraordinary rock formations and chaparral were typical of the Sea of Cortez
Looking south from our anchorage at La Condesa we could see the famous Tetas de Cabra (literally translated: goat tits). The next day we were on the other side looking north tucked safely in our slip.
