June 9, 2015 - Puerto Escondido (the second time)

We spent a week and a half back at Puerto Escondido.  All plans were to continue to head north but we had a lead on an RV to purchase so we went south back here.  Steve was taking a flight the following day to Phoenix to look and purchase an RV.  The post to describe his week will be in another blog entry as he went by himself while the kids and I stayed on mv Adagio for the week tied on to a mooring ball.   The week was busy and fun with home school, boat chores, and having other kid boats around.

We rented a car to take Steve to the airport so we had time for some breakfast out and a bit of shopping.  Loreto is a cute town!

We had the three kid boats over for dinner of sushi (from our tuna from freezer), BBQ and wonderful dinner. Jude, Katya and Adriana were kind enough to make a whole lot of sushi.

We went for a hike up the canyon, the Sierra de la Giganta range.  There has not been rain for quite some time so until we reached the end of the line for our hiking group, we had not seen any water.

Steve rushed back from the USA as we were expecting the Hurricane/Tropical storm Blanca to affact us in the sea.  We were already in the perfect hurricane hole for it, we just needed to batten down the hatches!  The winds gusted to no more than 42 knots for us and even the rain was not too bad, only heavy in the morning.  So although it took a day to pass us, all was fine in the boat.

We once again had to say goodbye to some friends that we will miss.  Some we will see again and some we will not.  The kids and Steve and I have made some wonderful new friends.

The kids, the last time together

We thought hotel Tripui would take us back in the back of a pickup truck.  Nope.......
