|Happy Birthday to me!|
We've had sunshine, fog, wind and cooler days, but all very pleasant. While perusing cruisers blogs, we've spotted an update on Whiteshell II's sailing blog. Claes and Lue were likely anchored out in front of us here in Mazatlan, but just far enough away we couldn't spot their vessel. We wish we'd had more time to catch up with Ellen and Ian on Kasasa as well, before they headed out, but it was good to see you again. Indeed we celebrated a BCA "burp" at the El Cid poolside!
Our drive back to Guaymas will take most of a day as it is almost 760 kms. on the Pacific Highway toll road 15, our planned route. The highway runs through the state of Sinaloa, bypassing Culiacan, skirting Los Mochis, before it crosses into the state of Sonora. Los Mochis is a terminus for the railway which runs to the famous Copper Canyon. Continuing on, the highway travels near the large city of Ciudad Obregon and leaves the historical towns of Alamos and El Fuerte further to the east. The Sierra Madre Occidental escarpment will be our eastern backdrop. The distance is longer than traversing the entire Baja Sur southern peninsula.
Once I've found out how to compress photos from my new camera we'll post more photos, otherwise it is taking way too long....take care everyone.
