We made the huge, monumental voyage from La Paz to Loreto. Here are some random pics of the voyage, in random order.
It’s spring here in the desert, and a young honeybee’s brain cell turns to finding something to drink. It can be a little intimidating. A heavy dew on deck is downright scary, especially when you have to go on deck to raise the anchor and get out into the wind to blow the bees away. It only happened 1 1/2 times, but we skipped a couple places because of rumors of bees.
Not fossils. Small little quartz arrows and little quartz balls in a red-brown paste.
Just a mean crab with an attitude. Not pretty. Not. Handsome, maybe, but only in a rugged sort of way.
Manta Rays are hard to capture, picture-wise. The “horns” that funnel plankton into the pie-hole are down and to the right. Four-foot wingspan, maybe.
Blast from the past. This is Daedulus, the Boeing corporate yacht. Nancy and I were on her many times while she was being built at Delta in Seattle as Affinity by our buddyDave for our friend John, a member of the New York Yacht Club, to drive to Australia for the America’s Cup Campaign. She originally carried two in-hull FISHEYE Underwater Video Cameras. Now she’s in La Paz. Cool.
Splashing water. Woo-hoo.
If you’re going to leave a colander on the beach, you’re going to confuse the seagulls.
Salt Pond, Bright Water, Sierra de Giagantes.
Spider Crab in the Sea of Cortez. Who knew?
How nice of the federales to build such a sturdy nesting tower for the ospreys.
Fishing net vs. Coral, net wins. Fish lose.
Identical boat to our boat in WA, Tidepool.
The coyote skulks
past the unmoved cormorant
-not a Labrador.
One night we anchored in front of Mordor.
Desert Weaverbird nest.
Not two sharks.
Five mobula rays, swimming in a circle to round-up krill.
Cool to see, tough to photograph.
