|Bahia San Francisco|
Bahia San Francisco is one of the picture postcard anchorages used to tempt tourists to the sea of Cortez with its crescent shaped bay, clear waters and long white, fine sandy beach and good hiking. Again this is an anchorage where we would spend a few days. We hiked up the ridge back to get a better view of the island, walked along the pebble beach collecting sea-worn agates and admiring more amazing geological formations that seem to abound the sea of Cortez.
One of the other boats in the anchorage was Chantey; a British registered Ketch with Ivan and Jane on board. We invited them over for drinks and eagerly listened to their stories – more wonderful people with rich lives.
Whilst In La Paz Katya met a marine biologist who was performing a study of various sea turtles. The lady saw that Katya was drawing and was impressed with what she was doing. One thing led to another and soon enough Katya gained a commission to draw five types of sea turtles which would become part of a document provided to cruisers to identify and report the different types of turtles found in the sea of Cortez. Katya has been working on the drawings and hopes to be able to send them when we have a good internet connection – whenever that might be.
