Our first visitors - Phil and Danette!

Phil and Danette (Brother and Sister-in-Law from Washington) joined us in Loreto for 10 days and we loved having them!

As you know, there isn't a whole lot of room on a sailboat, but they fit right in.

We weren't ready for Phil and Danette to leave, so we made a new Moondance rule: You can't leave until we get tired of you and make you walk the plank.

We spent one night in Loreto checking out the "big city". Loreto used to be the capitol of the Baja and has lots of history, plus great people, food, and shopping.

The rest of the time, we spent exploring the islands, fishing, and generally having a great time.

A few highlights:

Danette caught our biggest/best fish (not pictured here) - using hot dog as bait...

Phil caught Phil - using squid - which required some minor surgery (use your imagination on this one)...

Doug caught one fish three times - he was a flopper and didn't want to stay in the bucket...

And the dolphins that wanted to join us...

Phil and Danette: we miss you all ready and are looking forward to your next visit!
