a bay for two

Palm tree!

We rounded the point, and let out a deep breath. Bahia San Pedro was just what we needed: A quiet bay, with a dramatic landscape and flat water. While John chose to continue further south, we were happy to spend a couple days there, just the two of us. Except for the occasional company of pangueros, we had the bay to ourselves.

Dinghy exploration of nearby sea caves

We came across piles and piles of harvested shells

Taking tree-hugging to a
new level
We both found our energy back and finally recovered from the lack of sleep that accompanies windy nights. We filled our days exploring caves, snorkeling and spearfishing. We tackled a few boat jobs; I baked bread and washed laundry. We were in our happy place. The air was now cool in the evening. We sat in our bug-free cockpit, enjoying a Mexican beer and the sound of crickets.

We explored ashore, and discovered colourful insects, piles of harvested shells and Rick even hugged a large cactus. This was our favourite spot on the mainland, north of San Carlos. I'm sure the pictures speak for themselves.

Enjoying "us" time

Who knew grasshoppers came in primary colours?
(At least we think it's a grasshopper)
