We had been able to connect with our cell phone when we passed by a town yesterday and were able to update the weather/wind forecast. If it was accurate we were going to be having wind come our way on the 7th. We were camped on a beach with no wind protection and lots of sand. This would not be a fun place to hang out during a wind storm. We were glad when the wind had abated during the night and our plan was to try to get to Cabo Pulmo in the morning. Looks like we will be able to experience another Baja Sunrise on the water. This one did not disappoint.
We were able to set up camp behind an abandoned building which not only gave us some wind protection, but also some shade.
Part of the building was enclosed with a nice window looking out to the sea.
As the sun was setting two ospreys perched on a nearby tower.
The full moon .. no need to say more.
We had hoped to leave the morning of the 9th, but hearing the waves pound the shore and the wind shake our tent, it was obvious that we had another day of being here. Not a bad place as there was s mall town nearby that we could buy some fresh produce and even buy a pizza for an evening meal. Numerous mountain biking trails also surrounded the area so we were able to get some leg work in. For several hours of the last day, I occupied the nearby abandoned building for a change of location and to bake bread. It was quite scenic.
The wind started calming on the evening of the 9th. This is a good sign.
