Baja 2016/2017

Feb.4

We awoke before first light and quickly could tell that the seas had calmed over night and we should have breakfast and be on our way,

 An easy decision to determine that we should be on the water pronto.

 Our kayaks are packed, we slide them into the water.

Lots of interesting rock formation are along the coastline. some of it is quite different than other stretches of coast we have paddled.

 Not many camping spots on this beach. This area we are discovering is also fairly populated.

Quite scenic and some of the houses are quite large.

We have attempted to camp at several beaches, but alas there have been houses there. The miles are adding up and the daylight is departing. We round a unique point and are close to La Ventana.

 Great rock formations

Our quest for a campsite was found. It was near a road and also hot springs which added to some of the traffic passing by our tent. After a long day of paddling the noise did not bother us and soon we were asleep. This area is well known for kiteboarding and later this month we plan to meet Ryan, Beth and Jeff here. We are hoping that the wind in the morning is better for kayaking than kiteboarding.

Mileage paddled 28.3 nautical miles
