I'm not naked,
I'm just barefoot all the way up!

Sea lions are also heard barking in the distance. Finding a beach with no true road access, no tourist, no homes, and no sport fishing so we can enjoy it quietly and serenely is a real gem. Nikki gets to chase small crabs and lizards and that is sufficient for her. She is happy.

Mike ready to 'operate' on fish hook stuck in hand
These little pliers didn't do the job
He had to use 24" bolt cutters.
We feast twice on delicious fresh Cabrilla (Mexican Sea Bass – called groupers by some) caught by someone on another sailboat who had too much for their need and were happy to share. It will be difficult to later eat fish/seafood purchased at store after being spoiled with such FRESH fares.
In the morning, we watch a “fin whale” feeding around the bay but staying close to our boat for about 45 minutes moving extremely slow while feeding. Someone snorkeled with it to watch it underwater. I don’t have the ‘huevos’ to do this but he did state that the whale was at least 35+ feet long and that it was really neat to watch it move so calmly and leisurely.

The beach here is beautiful with a huge sand dune at one end of the bay, probably over 100’ tall. With the prevailing winds we witnessed heading at that end of the bay for the time we were there we can see why it formed that way.

|Until Nikki is done with it....|
But the winds will quickly erase her tracks

Dinghy has clothes on but we are barefoot all the way up!
