Baja 2016/2017

Feb. 5

We knew this day had the potential of being long. We needed to go by several town and most likely more houses. We were excited when the waves quieted during the night and by the first light we were on the water. We had gone over 3 miles when the sun cracked the horizon.

 Ryan does not like this photo due to lack of wind, but we are happy kayakers.

We noted in our guide book that this next bay was called the Bay of Dreams. It had been changed from the Dead Bay by the developers. Needless to say we were somewhat impressed by two of the houses that were built on the shore line.

 There were many more structures to the rear of the house. We are hoping that the grass is astro turf.

Glad when we were past these houses and finally found a beach to take a stretch break.

 It felt good to get out of the kayaks.

We did not want to repeat yesterdays experience of not finding a campsite till dark so we started looking soon after this break and were relieved when  we found a nice sandy beach that was hidden from nearby houses.

We even had time to bake bread which can be challenging when you are surrounded by sand.

Mileage paddled -18.2 nautical miles
