Bahia Santa Maria continued

11-29-2012.....Pretty windy last night but the anchor held good.  
Bahia Santa Maria. Yes, that is Bullwinkle out there.
Calm in the morning. We paddled over to the west shore where we could see an arroyo coming down between the hills. We found a small rocky beach and landed. Following the dry wash up about 50 yards we found a trail that was mentioned in the guide books and went up the wash to the top of the ridge and down to the beach and presumably over the lighthouse. We stopped at the ridge and admired the rugged coastline to the east. It must have rained here recently. Green ground cover and lots of flowering cactus. It was a good hike.

Our orange kayaks on the rocky beach landing.

Snack break.

Our raven friend that followed up on the peaks.

Thought we'd take one more day of rest before doing the last 36-48 hr strecth to Cabo San Lucas. We lazed around the boat doing some cleaning and I caught a couple of one foot mackeral looking fish on bread dough. Later a couple of fishermen came by to see if we could let them have 2 AA batteries for their GPS. Of course we did and asked about the fish. They said not good eating, but used for marlin or tuna bait.
Nice sunny afternoon and comfortable with the 10 knot wind.
