BAJA 2014/15

Jan. 21, 2015

Left our beach before sunrise and said good morning to the barking sea lions. Our goal was to get to Punta Theresea before the wind picked up. We checked out a whale carcass that was above tide line south of San Nicolas.  It's skin was quite hardened by the harsh desert environment. Don headed up to Chicos and returned with water and a bag of oranges. Chico told Don that there would be a strong north wind tomorrow. With that in mind we made steady process to our destination. Arriving there as white caps were forming on the horizon. Feels like the El Norte will be a strong one.  We checked out several campsites hoping to find one with some wind break. The tide was out so we were able to check out the point. The wind was much stronger there and did not feel like it was going to calm tonight.
