Hola, So here we sit in the small but sheltered cove behind Punta Mangles.  We just arrived here today after leaving from the south end of Isla Coronados.  Our intention was to go up to Caleta San Juanico today but the wind was gusting to 30knts and we figured what is the rush and tucked in for the night here.  We have been experiencing a Norther (as its called here) for the past four days and had been on the lee shore of Coronados for four days while the wind blew and blew.  This morning everything was calm and thought to make a quick dash up to San Juanico for a change of scenery but on route the wind started picking up again so we will wait instead of bashing up wind for no reason.  We spent some time in Loreto early in the week but I will let Lauren talk about it when she gets a chance.  We are planning to turn around and head back south to La Paz in about a week then work our way back to Cabo to get ready for our big passage to French Polynesia.  The excitement for the trip across is building and the boat has been running smooth(guess we got most of the bugs out of her system) as of late.  Not too interested in who wins this Superbowl but I think Pittsburg has enough rings including one that belongs to the Seahawks.  Have a safe superbowl weekend,
