Not much to write today – moderate annoying headwinds in the morning, changing to the better after Cabo San Pablo. Calm seas, lots of rock reefs to make a wide berth around at low tide, but enough sandy beaches in bays in between. I landed on a steep gravel one for the change, rather drag my boat uphill on gravel than across a sticky sandy flat. Launching will be easy tomorrow!
I saw a few Eagles soaring over the cliffs, nice view! Plus a seal colony at Cabo San Pablo, but I didn’t even come close not to bother them, I’ve seen enough seal colonies for the next years.. 🙂
I still felt very tired all day, and paddled with closed eyes lot of the time. Plus it was really going slow with headwinds and incoming tide all morning to make it even a bit frustrating, as I didn’t really read the “E” behind the “N” on the fore cast, which made the usual welcome northerly here a headwind!
On land, again the hinterland showed some “normalities” for me, a river with water, real grass and trees and cows plus their pads allover…really nice to be out of the desert!
Another long day tomorrow, then on Friday I’ll turn around Cabo San Diego and will head south west!!! The weather seems to hold for a bit, great!
I really would love to be in Puerto Williams for x-mas!
