March 31st and we have just departed Los Cabos for Los frailles...
I still have a signal now but don't know what we will find around the bend.
I will once again post when I can and add photos when there is wi-fi...might be a few weeks as we are anchoring out, slowly making our way to La Paz.
Los Cabos was a ball...
Los Cabos was a ball...
Yesterday, we visited with friends of friends, who were Vacationing in an exquisite villa nearby the marina. Our hosts picked us up and whisked us off to their palace on the cliffs over-looking the ocean. Jon and I chatted and made new friends and the kids played with a pile of Their grandchildren in the pool and a lovely afternoon was had by all.
Their chauffeur and houseman, Mauricio, a very hip and handsome guy and his extraordinary chef-wife are caretakers for the house. Mauricio helped us with our Spanish giving us a better insight into what areas use what phrases and how to speak with the most respectful phrasing- always important when you are mostly butchering someone else's language!
He dropped us off at a restaurant near the marina, up in a valley behind the hill, with the big cross. Flora farms is not on a cruisers budget but we had to break the bank for this one. We were seated outside, among rows of sunflowers and tomatoes and pots of geramniums and wildflowers, at linen covered community tables, surrounded by tivoli lights dangling from trees. They grow everything organically at Flora and raise their pigs and chickens. They also sell fresh produce from the farm so after an unbelievable dinner of wood-fired pizzas and roast chicken and organic vegetables and cold WHITE WINE( unheard of luxury for us these days) we loaded up on lettuces, cherry tomatoes, peppers, fresh basil and sage...and piles of homemade sausages! We couldn't resist the wood fire ciabattas and sticky buns and I am eating one right now with freshly griund coffee grown in the Baja!
So.... Hunter is taking a turn at the helm, we just passed two sea-turtles, one green, one leatherback and the hook is in the water as we motor slowly along, the flat calm sea shining below us, the sun baking us brown and we are off to the next anchorage.
The only question is...
When are you coming to join us?
