5/31/2013 – Photo post: Agua Verde

Now that we have internet access again, here are some photos of places we visited on the way to La Paz.  First stop after Ensenada Blanca was Agua Verde.

Sometimes I feared that we might be a little close to shore if we happened to swing north but it turns out we had plenty of room.  Well, maybe not plenty, but enough.  Here’s another shot of the same anchorage from a different vantage point.

Doesn't get much snugger than this.

And one more:

Here’s the Google Earth bird’s eye view of the anchorage.

This is just the north cove.  The entire anchorage is much larger than this and has places that provide protection from the south instead of the north.

I hate to tell you what I was thinking about when I saw this little guy.  Wouldn’t want to offend my vegetarian and vegan friends.  But I do loves me some carnitas!

These guys came by the last day we were there.  Actually they’d been by before but we didn’t really want anything.  They collect garbage for 10-30 pesos a bag depending on the size of the bag.  However, there’s a young woman who competes with them from her paddle board and she beat them to us that day.  However, they had some handmade items we wanted to take a look at.

One big happy family.

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.
