Northbound: La Paz to Santa Rosalia

We worked our way north from La Paz and enjoyed the wildlife and beaches along the way.  Each of the anchorages was a little more crowded this time as lots of other cruisers are working their way north to get away from the heat and out of the hurricane zone for the summer months.  The dolphins seemed to show up more often too.



Along the way the scenery was as beautiful as ever.




We found out that there are a number of interesting activities in Santa Rosalia for Semana Santa ("Holy Week") so we headed up there before crossing to Guaymas. We pulled into Santa Rosalia a few days before Good Friday.  That gave us some time to catch up with Lee and Cynthia on Goldenheart (http://www.ongoldenheart.com/) before going out to watch the festivities.  We exchanged lots of stories with them about our trip to La Paz and back, and their time in Bahia Conception. 

Our friends on Solar Flair has sailed along with us for the last couple of days towards Santa Rosalia and gave us some photos of our boat sailing along.  That was a nice treat as we don't have many photos of own boat under sail.
