John and two of our
Agua Verde (Green water) was a delightful anchorage with quite a few
other boats. I put on my shorty wetsuit (it is still only 25 deg in the
water) and went for my first decent snorkel in months - it was wonderful. Mike
and Johnny had another unsuccessful fishing outing. We met a young
British/ Swedish family with two little kids on s/v Lolo - Mike later went spear
fishing (diving) with Petter, and did so again in Candeleros, but Mike has
decided that he is too old for this game. He watched Petter's back (an excellent
diver) while he did the hard work spearing a few fish. And
now this is what the guys are getting up to on Time2 these days!

After being out of touch for the last few days we have had a real flurry of
internet activity over the last few days. This bay has a new resort hotel
with open/ free WiFi and all the cruisers anchor here to catch up on email,
etc. Today I headed over to the resort, who are very welcoming of cruisers,
offering use of their many pools, Jacuzzis, bars and restaurants for free as
long as you buy a drink or two. I have no idea why anyone would come to this
desolate spot for a beach holiday, but the facilities are great! I lay at
the pool on a very luxurious lounger, with fluffy towels and excellent
waiter service, while I updated my iPod and drank cold beer ... .perfect!
Here is a pic of 5 year old Teddy, from s/v Lolo - this little guy can
tied a bowline; pull start a 9hp outboard and drive around on the dinghy - all
by himself. What an amazing way to grow up!

Tomorrow we head north to the national park islands around Loreto, have not
yet finalized our destination. Morning will tell!
