It has been many months since we wrote our last blog post. Back in March, things were looking bleak for Davie and sailing in the Sea of Cortez. However, after some excellent medical care by one of Washington’s top oncologists, we are back on Cygnus for a few weeks.

Once we were settled on anchor off La Paz, we took a few more days for minor repairs and provisioning. We had a nice visit with the Doctor who had originally attended to Dave in March. She was delighted to see how far Dave had progressed.
About five days after our arrival we finally motored out of La Paz and headed for Caleta Lobos. A beautiful cove just a few hours out of La Paz. We set the hook well before sunset and enjoyed a relaxing evening with only two other neighbors. And a visiting sea turtle.
The next day we took the Kayaks to the beach and hiked to the top of the ridge where we were able to view a wonderful panorama including La Paz to the south and the island of Espiritu Santo to the north west.

Tonight we are hunkered down in and unexpected 20 knot westerly blow. We took the opportunity to rest and work on the installation of our new solar panels.
