Baja 2016/2017

Oct. 27

The morning greeted us with a beautiful sunrise.

 We never get tired of Baja sunrises.

And just as we expected we would have a carry to get to where we could put our boats in the water.

 We were glad when the sand was hard and we did not sink in with each step that we took.

Finally the last bit of gear and our boats made it to the waters edge.

A reddish Egret entertained us as we were walking back and forth.

 They have quite the technique for getting their food.

Back to the boats and returning to the beach that we started from 10 days ago. We had some great sea turtle sightings. One turtle had several large barnacles on its back. Several sea lions checked us out as we appreciated the day of calm seas.

 Life is good.

Decided to stop and do some snorkeling and were pleased to see a variety of fish. Then it was time to head back to camp.

 The hills have mellowed out this last stretch.

We made it back to Camp Archleon by late morning. Time enough to sort our gear, head to town, do laundry and check our email. Always glad when there is nothing that we have to deal with. Another beautiful coastline that we have gotten to appreciate.  This may have been one of the most isolated stretches that we have done.

Mileage paddled 15.2 nautical miles.
