Los Frailes - Cabo Pulmo Reef (Ginger)

Our schedule has slowed considerably since Cabo San Lucas. We motored all night Monday night, to avoid the unfavorable winds that were pummeling us in Cabo and arrived at Los Frailes Tuesday morning. We are officially in the tropics south of the Tropic of Cancer. We have anchored south of a coral reef and found that even adjacent to our anchorage there are tropical reef fish. We've been enjoying the snorkeling and the company of the other boats in our anchorage. Last night we saw that our anchor light had attracted hundreds of fish 14 to 20 inches long. We spent half an hour trying to identify all the different fish from some sort of tuna to Sierra Mackerel. This morning Peter has fixed the port running light that got knocked loose by a wave on our trip from Cabo. We've been closely monitoring the weather keeping track of tropical storm Sergio but have yet to experience any large swell or high wind here. The bad weather in Washington has been updated daily even on our weather report down here. We plan to spend another night or two in this anchorage weather permitting and then head north toward La Paz.
