Leg Two of Baja Ha Ha Complete

We are now anchored in Bahia Santa Maria 600 miles south of San Diego. It took 48 hours of sailing and motor sailing to reach this anchorage form Turtle Bay. Along the way the water became bluer and warmer. Here in Bahia Santa Maria the water is 85 degrees and it is sunny and warm.

Fishing was the dominant theme on this passage. We caught Yellow Tail and Yellow Fin tuna. We had a Dorado on the line, but it managed to shake the hook near the boat. Several boats reported outstanding fishing. One member of the fleet caught and released a seven foot sailfish.

Today is a rest, relax, and catch up on sleep day. Tomorrow we'll go explore the mangroves, hike the beaches and there is a party planned with live music. I will also try my luck fishing in the bay.
