S/V INTREPID II - Cape Dory Intrepid 40

My photo
Intrepid II is a Cape Dory Intrepid 40 sailboat, hull #2, designed by Chuck Paine and discovered by the Captain in Blue Hill Maine in 2006. The crew are Kelly (Captain) and Carol (Admiral and Blogger). In 2009 INTREPID II embarked on her West Coast journey from Victoria to San Francisco, the Baja Sur Peninsula and into the Sea of Cortez. In 2010/2011, we sailed ifrom Guaymas, south to Bahia Banderas and back. In 2011/2012 she left Guaymas, headed south to La Paz, spent three weeks at anchor on our northward journey and rested on the hard in San Carlos. Her 4th, 5th and 6th seasons were Boat Projects related. Optimistic that there will be more cruising on the horizon!

Photo Recap: San Blas Jungle Tour - Crocodiles and other critters

Our mangrove tour guide Guam obviously knows where to look for bird life and marine life. However, it took us cruisers quite some time to sharpen our eyes to know where to look for crocodiles, iguanas, turtles and other critters.  These photos are a mix of animals and flowers we saw on the tour in the mangroves and at the crocodile refuge further up the waterway.
