Sailing the Sea of Cortez

The shark got most of the fish! Oscar and Erica worked hard to get this fish aboard. He was big! We think it is a Bonita. No fish tonight

We look like true cruisers with stuff stacked everywhere on the boat. The beaches are beautiful, the water warm, the snorkeling and diving fun. We are buddy boating with 3 other boats--Ubuntu with Steve and Arleen, Perigrin with Mugs and Larry, and Aquadesiac with Doug and Linda.

Erica and Oscar were our crew for our trip to Loreto Fest. They are originally from Columbia, moved to Alaska and are currently on a bicycle trip that originated in Port Townsend, Washington. We met them in La Paz and they stayed on our roof top along with 3 other bicyclists for a couple of weeks.
They are brother and sister and we really enjoyed their company, enthusiasm and all the help they gave us sailing from La Paz to Loreto. They enjoyed the adventure of learning to sail and all the work it entails. We will miss them tremendously. I feel so lucky to meet them and hope we get to see them again some day.
