North from La Paz
*Remember–Milou is for sale; read all about it here!*
We’re meeting up with a friend at the end of April in La Paz, but we had time on our hands to take a little trip north in company with our friends on Nomi. Brace yourself for All The Photos.
We’ve been so happy to find accessible, awesome hiking almost everywhere we’ve been. Trailheads leading from convenient dinghy landings are everywhere, and they always lead up.
Not all of us have been bagging the peaks. SOME of us who shall remain nameless (but are in charge of cameras) have rediscovered a lurking fear of heights, reasserting itself on steep ridge trails…
Isla San Fransisco, view from on high…just like the brochure…
Apparently, it can go for an entire decade in some places in Baja without actual rain. Despite the lack of water, some things manage to grow in the desert..
…and some things, not so much.
Pufferfish mummies are a real hazard to bare feet around here.
We’re trying to finish off some supplies that have been hidden around the boat, before we move off. Here’s T’s introduction to canned fruit cocktail:
Assessment, portioning, sampling, horrified recoil.
Buddy boat in San Evaristo
We loved the Los Gatos area on the Baja mainland.
View from the stern.
Hermit crabs in an upturned oyster shell. They will tolerate craisins.
Loreto is a center for sea kayak expeditions, just north of here…we’ve run into quite a few camps.
We spent a couple of lovely nights tucked in at Agua Verde, as well.
This stretch of coast is supposed to have amazing fishing. So far, all we’ve caught is this shark.
Michu does his best imitation of a porcupine fish’s goofy smile.
We’ll be heading back south in a few days, having the unusual pleasure of revisiting anchorages along the way. Our time is winding down, but we still have a little cruising left in us.
