Karel forecasted headwinds up to 22 knots today, but we still liked to get away from our city camp. But we are in no hurry with our arrival date in La Paz on April 13th, so we decided to take an easy day after our 50 km yesterday. It was already blowing strong in our faces when at Punta Pescadero, we found a precious private beach between rocks and a lovely reef on the doorstep for a snorkeling session in the afternoon. That’s our camp for today! Around the point, the wind would be just even stronger. No hurry, no fighting against 20+knots wind needed today!
Our snorkeling session number two was as amazing as number one, we saw even a small shark, and the coral life was a bit more colorful. We spotted some new fish, and Fylkir said he’s thankful he has not to name them all! We dried out in the sunshine, and discovered we can also have a hot shower on the beach with our black water bags! Actually quite welcome, even in the about 23 degrees warm water. We wore our PFD on snorkeling this time which gave additional warmth and flotation. But when I wanted to dive down to grab a shell, LOL, no diving possible with that piece on!
Our Hilleberg Keron 4 tunnel tent can also improve a lot when we fold the whole vestibule away at least on one end to have maximum ventilation and a draft straight through. We should have done that also in earlier days! All in all …life is good! Tomorrow will also be a strong headwind, but it might start to blow a bit later that we can do some distance.
