Running From Weather

October 16, 2005
Puerto Don Juan

We've been on the go for four days in a row now, and I'm pretty tired (John's napping) so this will only be long enough to let you know that after getting as far south as Bahia de las Animas yesterday, we returned to Puerto Don Juan this morning. The weather has been very unsettled and we seem to keep choosing anchorages that are only good for that day's weather - then we have to move the next day when the wind changes direction. Since PDJ is calm in all weather, we're looking forward to getting a good night's sleep tonight without the rocking and rolling we've had for the past three nights. It was a shame we had to leave Ensenada el Pescador because that's a really beautiful spot with an interesting looking reef which we didn't have time to snorkel. Maybe on the way back south again. Animas Bay is wide open to just about everything, so we'll probably give it a pass the next time.

In the meantime we've got overcast skies courtesy of the weather system affecting Southern California, but no rain yet. We'll keep our fingers crossed for a good boat wash out of it.
