The humidity has gone up drastically the last few days. It spooked us until we remembered that the water is still cold.
We did get a nice rainbow, though.
Nice new tuna seiner headed south. Rusty hulk of a shrimper headed north. Guess which fishery is subsididized? Guess which fishery makes money?
Mexicans fish with live bait on handlines. It must be impressive to watch when they catch 8′ sharks and marlin. The bagbeaks are helping, I’m sure. Like Ping.
It was great to see a Mexican family using their boat for recreation. Even though they were weaving through the anchorage at dusk. Maybe that part wasn’t great.
Nice little palm oasis. Note the Mexican Chest Freezer.
A little bigger than a tennis ball.
Lots of palm trees in unlikely positions. Either they are date palms, not coconut palms, or else there are some very tired sparrows around here.
Mexico has cracks in it.
The Water here is full of floating bits of kelp, probably dying as the water warms. It makes fishing and motoring more interesting.
Another property dispute, I’m guessing.
This flicker is a bug eater, so I suppose he’s eating bees.
The Bees are thirsty. Any fresh water on deck and the bees show up. Luckily they’re incredibly benign. You can ignore them, if you can ignore them. Luckily they’re not “Africanized” Killers.
