Back to the Baja!

We made it back to the Baja from Mazatlan. We motored 37 hours right into the wind, but a smooth ride. As you can see, the view was beautiful!

The Sea was pretty flat, so we got to see some interesting wildlife. Lots of jumping/flapping rays that are fun to watch - we just can't figure out why they jump.

Traveling turtles... we passed a long chain of turtles heading east. They looked like floating rocks and all had a bird along for the ride. Not a bad way to travel!

We fished most of the way, but only caught a few things - not keepers. We hooked a big, beautiful Dorado that we are still drooling over. Unfortunately, it snapped the line, waved at us, and swam away. Next time!
