Warmed up today, over 70 and sunny, nice to wear shorts after living in fleece since Seattle! (San Diego was in the 40's at night!)
Ruben from Anabelle's Fuel Service pulled alongside us today in a fuel panga and delivered 26 gals of diesel while we're at anchor, for $3/gal. Sweet!!! Even took our basura (garbage) for us!!!
After breakfast, we went off in the dinghy to explore. Got a tour of the town by a guy here waiting for repair work to be done on the boat he's crewing on. After a week here, Eric knew the place well (not that there's TOO much to discover). We had a fun walk about the town to check things out. Our report: the Pacificos were cold at Enrique's, and the burrito's fresh and tasty (and the Pacificos also cold!!) at the Morocco. Turtle Bay is a hard scrabble little town, with dirt streets and not a lot of industry evident to replace the tuna cannery that shut down a number of years ago. Over 100 miles of dirt road from the paved highway, it doesn't see a lot of tourists except the "yatistas". But it was a great immersion into Mexico, and felt good to get out and walk after a few days of sailing.
Got back to Bravo late in the afternoon, to some boat chores and repairs. All going very well.
Will likely head south tomorrow, to Bahia Santa Maria, near Magdalena Bay, about 220 miles to the south.
