As planned yesterday (11-25) we arrived at the anchorage next to the small village of Hipolito. There are maybe two dozen houses or other buildings here... pretty small. Got there pretty late in the afternoon, and although its a pretty good anchorage shielded from the swell, there's still a pretty good shore break so we didn't go ashore.
One other cruiser was anchored here, Chris aboard Swabby, who came by as he motored out to say hello. He left Portland in July and is working his way south. We had seen him before in Oceanside.
We headed for the anchorage at Abreojos at about 8:00am this morning (11-26) and arrived at 3:45 pm. The afternoon breeze was about 15 knots, so good sailing. At the outer anchorage next to the village there was quite a bit of swell wrapping around the point, so we moved about a mile SE to another anchorage more protected. No swell, but still windy.
They do have cell phone coverage here so we were able to check email and upload this blog update.
Tomorrow, if the wind and swell die down some, we may move back in front of the village and kayak in to the market. Then we plan on leaving for Magdalena Bay 130 miles down the coast. That's the next major stopping spot before the 185 mile sail from there to Cabo San Lucas.
