It feels great to finally be underway - and to have no where to spend any money !!
It took us about 11 hours to reach our first anchorage, Cabo Colnett. The seas were a bit on the big side but shaped well and from behind so it was a reasonably comfortable ride. The wind was light so unfortunately we motored the entire way. The anchorage is behind a beautiful table flat headland that looks like a 2 layer cake. The headland forms a large bay with few signs of life. We were the only boat there. It was a tad rolly overnight but we all decided spending the night was preferable to motoring all night.
Cabo Colnett is pretty interesting because a joint Chinese/Mexican Company has plans to turn the entire bay into a port that eventually will equal LA/Long Beach in size !! The plans were put on hold due to the economic downturn and there are no signs of any work on the project. It is hard to visualize a mega port in the beautiful, tranquil bay we just spent the night. Luckily we had the opportunity to be there before the project gets underway.
Currently, we are underway to our second anchorage in Bahia San Quintin. It is a beautiful bay with a lagoon and several volcanic cinder cones to explore. Our plan is to spend 2 night. More on San Quintin later.
