San Carlos to Bahia Concepcion – Start of our 2nd Season

After retrieving a homemade buoy that found itself caught on our anchor, we left Bahia San Carlos and had a fast and fantastic 95 mile sail to Playa Coyote in Bahia Concepcion. We had wind all day and night, traveling 6 to 7 knots, music on, spirits high. Nice to feel good about a crossing! We were actually sailing too fast, and during a night watch, Scott made a slight detour so that we wouldn’t arrive at 4am.

Once in Bahia Concepcion, we snorkeled and relaxed in Playa Coyote. Later in the week, we motored over to Playa Buenaventura for lunch and met Nathan, Mark, and Olivia, and enjoyed their good burgers and margaritas. It’s quiet, and it feels like we have the entire bay to ourselves this time around.

We pulled up anchor and sailed over to Punta Chivato. Last time we were here bummed us out as the town seemed abandoned and we never did get to walk what’s known as “Shell Beach” as the swell made it impossible for us to stay. This time, all was calm and I hit the shell jackpot! I collected a lot of shells, mostly for the fun of it, and then threw the majority back into the water.
