We all had our share of Cabo , some a little more than others. The anchorage was a far dingy ride into the marina, but the clear warm water, and the nice breeze were a much better choice. The overpriced Marina came with no breeze, loud rap music and a a fee of 150 per night. We left Wednesday morning and headed up the Cape to Los Frailes, a spot that we enjoyed in 2000 and 2001. We had a slow sail up ,but made up for it with the fish we caught. We caught a 4 foot Mahi and a 20 pound Ahi. We enjoyed sashimi and sushi for lunch and ceviche and tacos for dinner.
Los Frailes was again a great anchorage. We enjoyed dinners with our friends on Vento, and had fun seeing the gang on Qualchan. Tristan made a new friend Luke who is his age. The boys impressed us with their independence. Tristan and Luke took off solo in the Kayak and landed it like pros on the beach, carefully watching the surf and timing their landing and take off perfectly.
The bay was alive with bat rays flying out of the water, large schools of colorful fish and a fun and noisy sea lion colony. The only downfall to the bay was the no see ums on the shoreline at dusk The evening Bon Fire had to be postponed.
All is well, we are now under sail now headed toward Los Muertos ( Bahia Los Suenos) where we will wait out an upcoming weather front and hope to find a few more amenities than Los Frailes.
The upgrades on Meshach have been great, but we are again without refrigeration... Not that bad but ice is now a much needed commodity given we just caught our third fish. Plenty to share in the next anchorage.
