We should be in Mazatlan in the morning and are looking forward to it. We fell in love with the old part of the city last year and we are anxious to do some more exploring, plus eating lots of those huge shrimp. Yum!
Sorry to report, but we haven't got any fish yet. Doug has been dragging the hand lines, but no luck. Maybe today...
We have some good news to report though, we made our first batch of fresh water from salt water. It is rated as "pure" with only 119 Total Desolved Solids (TDS) and tastes just wonderful. It is a miracle!
Our trip so far:
First day out, we motored from La Paz to Playa La Bonanza on Isla Espiritu Santo, which was about 21 miles.
Our second day out, we motor/sailed 114 miles and are about in the middle of the Sea of Cortez - no land in site and very few boats out here. It seems like we only see the big ships at night - during the day nothing. Go figure!
We have 110 more miles to go to reach Mazatlan - so one more overnighter. We are getting pretty good at these, but always look forward to getting back to our normal sleeping schedules.
We plan on spending a couple of days in Mazatlan and then will continue our trek South. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we will be able to stop at Isla Isabella - the Mexican Galapagos. I really want to see all of the colorful booby birds!
