bahia tortugas snapshots

As we row to shore, dolphins and pelicans are everywhere. We love the dolphins who swim by the boat regularly... We like the pelicans from a distance. They particularly like hanging out on the boat in the photo below; the stench as we row by is rather potent, inspiring us to row quickly past it!

Pelicans and cormorants chillin' out

Remember those tamales? Here is the chef! Magdalena is warm and effusive, plus, she makes the best tamales!

By Monday afternoon, many boats left the bay to go further south, we'll be following them early Wednesday morning, when the winds hopefully pick up. While ashore, Leianne and Dave organized a piñata party for some of the kids in the town... We pitched in, but headed off to get our provisioning done, and missed the piñata action. We hung out with a few boaters, as well as Hector, Kalel, and Rogelio - we were also joined by Pampa, (Rogelio's nephew), who made some yummy ceviches and even let me help!

Choro is what they call a mussel here
