Punta Chivato - Baja Peninsula

Well, we tried to go to Mulege to provision, but the wind and the anchorage didn't cooperate. Instead, we traveled 9 more miles to Punta Chivato and are happy we did.

Punta Chivato is another beautiful bay (go figure!) on the Baja Peninsula. It is lined with expensive homes, an air strip, a couple of restaurants, and a fancy hotel. We decided to treat ourselves to dinner at the fancy hotel, but changed our minds - $38 a plate is too much to pay for fried chicken.

But, it was worth the trip. While at the hotel, we were told that they would be closed for two days and there wouldn't be anyone around to kick us out of the pool. We took advantage of that - we spent two days swimming and lounging. Can't beat that!

We met some wonderful new friends from Tucson/San Carlos: Wally and Sue on Toucan and Stu and Maggie on Mistress. We look forward to sharing more great times with these guys.

We checked out the golf course (hah!), walked the amazing shell beach, socialized, and the usual fun stuff!

That is cool you got to sneak into that pool Their prices there are insane.
Ask around for "Doc" and Bunny - they own a house there. We met them briefly at San Marte. Then ask them to find that black labrador for me - I want that dog!
