After dropping Don and Emily in Loreto, we spent 9 days on the outside (east) of Isla Carmen–taking advantage of the super light winds and warm weather. Especially cool was the chance to visit Salinas for several days. Usually the wind–both north and south whistles through this Bahia. The former salt mining town–abandoned in the 1980s–enjoyed a worldwide distribution. Currently it is being restored as a lodge for sportsmen hunting the “excess” Desert Bighorn Sheep that are being repopulated on the island. Needless to say we didn’t ignore the signs saying not to hike in the interior.
We have only a couple weeks left to enjoy the Sea before heading north to Puget Sound to prepare Restless our 36′ trawler for the summer season up there.
Here are some pictures we found that I missed posting last time.
While hanging out at Bahia Salinas, we had a front row seat to watch the fascinating pelicans go about their daily routine. The crashing splashes out of nowhere sometimes right next to the boat could surprise us if caught off guard.
