Where I stayed
Windstrutter

Flag of Mexico  ,
Thursday, January 7, 2010

Well... we decided that we'd leave,then the head gasket (on the outboard this time!) decided we should stay and wait for it to be couriered from Hermisillo.
We'd had enough of the marina ,Windstrutter looked like a horse in a stall,so we set her free and took off.We motored out of the bay (well,we drifted out of the entrance,surrounded by shrimping boats! I was just about to drop the anchor( and that's not all) when Tone bled the fuel and off we went again!).We shook out the sails and played around for a couple of hours in a F4(about 20-25knots of wind) then crept into a beautiful secluded bay (Bahia Catalina) and we were alone.
We anchored with a view of cactus covered volcanic rock around us and pelicans fighting over their supper.After our supper we layed down in the cockpit and watched the stars.Bliss!
In the morning I jumped in the dinghy and rowed around the bay for over an hour.
Then in the afternoon we sailed back to Guaymas followed by seals and dolphins,whilst we followed the shrimp boats.
Our engine part has just arrived, so we plan to sail across tonight, with the last quarter of the moon lighting the way.
