First thing in the morning we moved to La Ventana, the window island. A short trip once again and there within an hour. This was the anchorage we had tried to go to a week or so ago but the winds were too high. A pretty little anchorage and again, no boats to be seen other than some pangas with fisherman or tourists. We explored shore a little and took a hike here. This is another park island and there was actually a trail here. Steve scrambled up another hill while the kids and I took the trail. These islands are all part of a nature preserve and you need to have park passes to legally go here.
|Beautiful anchorage with good wind and wave protection from most directions|
|It was a pretty rough trip over, as you can tell by the huge seas we were battling.|
|This is "The Window". La Ventana translates to "The Window" and this feature|
is what the island is named after.
|Another view of this great anchorage.|
|Many types of Cactus in this region of Mexico|
|Cindy and Kevin on the park trail|
|Cindy usually claims the bow of the Walker Bay. She becomes our shallow water|
spotter since she has the best view of the bottom from there. The water is typically
clear enough to see the bottom even when more than 20 feet deep.
|Pelicans and Cormorants patiently watching for their next meal to swim by.|
|We took the Walker Bay all the around La Ventana Island. This was our first|
view of Adago after that somewhat lengthy trip. The new 2.5hp outboard is
a great addition. It allows us to take the smaller Walker Bay dinghy much further.
|Adagio peacefully anchored. Kayaks ready for use.|
|We are now hiking up above every anchorage to get pictures like this.|
|The Spotted Grouper a kayaker gave us. It made a great dinner!|
