We anchored at Isla San Francisco our first night out of La Paz.  Coincidentally, it was also the night of a full lunar eclipse.

Also coincidently, we were able to stay up late enough to see the shadow of the earth cross over the moon until it was so dark you could only see the lights of the secret alien base on the very edge.

The next morning, we found where a turtle had come ashore that night and dug five nests. Two on the way up the dune, one on top, and two on the way down.  We have no idea if this is normal, or if she was confused by the eclipse, or what.

We don’t even know if there were eggs in the holes.  We didn’t want to snoop.

The next night the practically full moon came back with a vengeance.  It was too late to help the turtle.
