La Paz to Puerto Los Gatos
When Jamie and I left La Paz the weather forecast called for diminishing winds and eventually calms, which was good news, as I would rather motor north in calm seas than bashing always into the prevailing wind. We anchored in two beautiful coves on Isla Espiritu Santo with associated hikes, and made short hops north each day. On the forth day out we found Puerto Los Gatos. The weather was perfect, and the water here was the clearest of the trip and we had the pristine cove to ourselves. There was a reef just off of the point with schools for fish, sting-rays, and corals, tunnels and deep caverns to snorkel through. We should have stayed in this perfect anchorage for a week. But our schedlue and Jamie's flight kept us moving. I'll remember this cove though, and hopefully find more like it on the way back south, a trip which may not come until next October.
