Thu 20/02-2020 Day 481

Pos: 27.3368,-112.2633 Loc: Santa Rosalia Acc: SV Pellucidar no paddling today I slept so well on the top of the yacht, just covered with some tarp and plenty of fresh air. Our kayaks were just on the dock beside me. The bench was a bit narrow, but I wouldn’t have changed it for the choice […]

Pos: 26.0066,-111.3383 Loc: Loreto Acc: Hotel Oasis   No paddling today   It got amazingly windy already around 9.30 am around 20 knots from the north. This gave us thank goodness a good feeling to stay in and to do city chores. The wifi here in the hotel is nothing worth, it blocked on my […]

Pos: 26.0066,-111.3383 Loc: Loreto Acc: Hotel Oasis Dist: 26,1 km Start: 07:45 End: 12:30   I had at least a good night’s rest on this small gravel beach, no coyotes howling, no wind trying to rip the tent, no other noises – earplugs! I do not always dare to exclude potential danger noises sleeping out […]
