the small world of ensenada grande

Ensenada Grande in the bright light
of mid-afternoon...
We tucked into Ensenada Grande for a just over a week. It was exactly what we needed: There was no internet, no phone, nowhere to spend money. There was wildlife, stark scenery, beaches and turquoise water. Everything is slower, calmer there. (Well, except for the nighttime Coromuels that is...)

A few boat jobs interspersed with refreshing swims, good books, and killer Rummy games later, we hopped our way back to La Paz to prepare for our departure north into the Sea.

Some quiet time after a busy day

I'm putting your straw hat to
good use Dana!

The view from our mini-beach

As the sun sets, the colours become more
saturated, richer

Our view from the cockpit


  1. The colors in those photos are great.

  2. You guys are in one of our favorite anchorages, but you would also LOVE the Marquesas! Thanks for your comments on our blog, and right backatcha--your photos and text are superb. Wish we could have connected with you in Mexico. Shane's Lapworth 36 is anchored next to us here in Atuona, Hiva Oa, but after a slight delay involving Skype calls to recalcitrant bank card issuers we are on our way again. Tahuata, then Nuku Hiva, Ua Pou, then the Tuamotus! Glad we're here but doubly glad the crossing's over. That said, it's an adventure of a lifetime and we hope to see you guys one of these days--perhaps in NZ?
    Karen and Jim

  3. Thank you for the kind words - and who knows - NZ doesn't sound far-fetched to us... I dream of the Marquesas, but I am loving the Sea too - oh so many possibilities! Cheers, K

  4. How fun to have your own little beach. Like playing house in the great outdoors. It amazes me that beautiful place like this aren't full of other people,

    It's comforting to know that there are places like this that still exist.
