We had a great spring cruising the Baja before hauling Carmanah out of the water for the summer (in Guaymas). After driving back to Bainbridge we dove into several boat projects on Restless. Although we went further north, the summer cruise focused mainly on Desolation Sound as the weather was unusually warm this season. We swam most days and actually caught salmon to complement the plentiful clams and oysters. Currently we’re working our way back to Guaymas to get Carmanah ready for launching and another cruise.
Most of the nicer homes in Loreto have fences but this one was exceptionally well decorated.
Lucy stalks a longhorn on the beach at Aqua Verde. Of course she chickened out immediately.
The big Ship Wreck party at San Juanico was a blast.

Dad & I wrestling the old holding tank from the front head. It had an unfortunate blow out last summer. Restless now has all new sanitation systems.
Linda & I putting the bimini up after adding a 60″ section to the middle. The extra protection was really nice.
My sister Lisa and niece Karrin went on a Restless mini cruise in June after Karrin finished the school year at Western.
Lucy really liked the remodel of the flybridge.
They don’t call him “Oyster Bob” for nothing. A whole lot of Oysters were consumed this summer.

Emily & Donna basking in the warm water of Desolation sound. Water temps were in the middle 70s until forest fire smoke in August caused a sudden drop into the 60s—Brrrr.
The new lay out for the fly bridge was great for gatherings.
