|We left San Quintin at O'dark thirty to get to Turtle Bay. The day started off beautifully. Little did we know what was ahead for us and our little ship. We motored all day, as the wind was on our nose. So far I'm not sure why we have sails. The day was drawing to an end and we would soon be starting our night watches. Soon the seas and wind started picking up and then all hell broke out. We tried to get to Isla Benito to anchor in the protection of the Island but just as we got there the moon set and we would not attempt to find the anchorage in the black of the night. We headed on to Cedros Island and were able to anchor just after the sun rose. Boy were we tired! There was a 130' power boat there also that had been knocked on her side from one of the massive waves. He was the captain taking her to P.V. They sustained some damage, but nothing major. The next day we headed to Turtle bay (Bhia Tortugas). What an interesting town. I grew to like it, and we stayed there several days. We ran into Dave and Donna, Lee and Nancy,Steve and Wendy, and John Tilley, all from Ventura. It was nice to see familliar faces. We are making new friends now, and it's getting to be a lot more fun.
