BAJA 2014/15

Jan. 24, 2015

There was still some wind blowing this morning when we departed. The seas has mellowed some, but the swells were still large. We knew that we could get some protection from the points as we headed north. We were hoping that the wind would not pick up, but knowing we had camping options we proceeded forward.. The points as expected had the largest swells and wind.   At San Lino we did a surf landing and took a break. Several houses are now built here and a road can be seen along the coast. We had been told about one of the houses providing water to kayakers so Don went searching. He met an American who had built one of the houses here. The water gathering was successful. Not that we needed any, but always helps to have a full supply. We can go about 6 or 7 days before needing water.. We decided to load the boats and head to Punta Rosa. We knew once we got around Punts San Lino, we would have some protection from Punta Rosa.  Years ago a fishing family had a permanent camp here so we had avoided stopping here. They have moved away, so camping here was an option again.  Several palm trees are growing in the arroyo.  It is a fairly steep beach to land so we were glad that the tide was high. The clouds were lowering and a rainbow appeared in the sky, not an usual occurance. We felt good about our mileage today considering we were going against the wind and swells.
