Saturday May 21st – San Evaristo

With Camelot well provisioned, fueled up and clean, we leave Costa Baja – La Paz aiming for San Evaristo, our first stop of many in the Sea Of Cortez. It’s a 7 hour ride, the day is radiant, no traffic on the water. Tom settles down reading while I keep watch armed with my camera. We pass Espiritu Santo and Partida Islands, gorgeous even from a distance. It’s a quiet and uneventful trip; we encounter a cargo ship and a couple of sailboats going South. Needless to say, my camera is working overtime.

Approaching Destination

We arrive in San Evaristo at 17:00. It’s a small and calm bay, there are three other boats anchored here. The color of the water is
incredible: you’d never guess there are hundreds of hues for the same color… We see a small fishing camp ashore that we won’t get to visit, as we want to get going further up the Sea early tomorrow morning.

We enjoy a spectacular sunset while having dinner. I can’t believe how dark the night is! Pitch black, with thousand of stars. No noise, either. We sleep like babies.
