|Puerto Escondido - the hidden harbour|
We are quite far out in the anchorage, to limit the fetch from the northers when they arrive, but it means a sometimes wet and bumpy dinghy ride into the dock. We got spoiled at the dock in La Paz, didn't we? This Singular marina provides a small store, mostly for beverages and a few staples; next door is the small clubhouse for the Hidden Harbor Yacht Club, which we've joined and already feel a part of the cruising community. There are laundry facilities (3 washers, 3 dryers - almost $3/load however), showers and a restaurant which we may try as a treat.
This anchorage is stunning with the high mountains to the northwest, the two "windows" which look out to the north towards Loreto, and the blue of the water. It's cooler today, a bit of cloud cover, but hopefully it will be another starry, starry night -- last night the clarity of the constellations was incredible. We plan to backtrack now with the blog and describe our trip up here from La Paz, which we left on February 27th, and ad some pictures, as time permits.
