Santispac – May 18 – 20, 2011

We left Pulpito at 6:00 am for an 8 hour trip up to Concepcion Bay.

On the way, the poles were in the water, as usual, but all of a sudden one pole bent over. We had a fish!! This was the first time we had caught anything from the boat. Rick reeled it in and I scooped it up in the net. Now we had to figure out what it was and what to do with it!! We checked the book and decided it was a Yellowtail. Rick killed it with Vodka and cleaned it on the back to keep the blood out of the cockpit. We put it in a bag and into the frig. A few minutes later Firefly caught a fish, then another. Waahoo! Fish for dinner. Maybe even Sushi!

We anchored in Playa Santispac to get out of the north winds. After anchoring, Firefly called to say there was a whale shark near our boat. We jumped in the dinghy and went near it. It didn’t seem to be afraid or mind the dinghy. I got a few pictures and a video I’ll try to post. Hope it works???

We headed over to Firefly and had some of their fish sushi style. We went to shore to try out the restaurant, but it was closed for the day, so we walked down the beach to the camping grounds. We hung out with the caretaker and his pets for a while before heading back to the boats.

The next day we had a fish lunch and Champagne on Hotel California then went to shore to try Ana’s Restaurant again. Today we are in luck, it is open, but the name has been changed to Lulu’s. We had great margarita’s and chili rellenos. We met up with a few boats from the anchorage, Di’s Dream, Miss Teak, and Loomba Loomba. Tomorrow we will move to a new anchorage deeper in the bay and try to get internet or phone service.
