|SV Content at anchor in Bahia Santispac|
Thursday morning we slept in and caught Geary's weather on VHF 22 about 08:10. Geary lives just 'down the road' at El Burro Cove. He tapes his Sonrisa net forecast for the local broadcast and adds a details specific to Bahia Concepcion. The temperature was rising with 87 degrees forecast and winds ESE 14 - 18. It appeared a good day to catch a ride into Mulege as we'd been at sea for over two weeks and wanted a few fresh veggies and to top up our liquid nourishment. Friendly folks camping in an RV, whom we'd met the night before, gamely drove the four of us the 20 miles into Mulege and drove us back as well a few hours later. It definitely beats the uncertainty of hitch-hiking.

It was HOT - the temperature reached 90 F and fans were on in the cabin. We felt incredibly lethargic and the winds were actually welcome when they blew up in the late afternoons. Friendly little finches sang cheerfully as they tried to nest under our mainsail cover, almost from the minute we had dropped anchor! Soon the sail cover was bristling with every clothespin we could find to keep the openings tight. Our fear was that if they wasted all their time trying to nest on the boat, they would lose everything once we left.
