Punta Santa Teresa – Oct. 9, 2011

It is 120 miles from Islotes to Santa Rosalia and the winds are predicted to be high. We decided to stop at Punta Santa Teresa for a few hours to eat and rest, and also so we would get into Santa Rosalia Marina in daylight.
There is a small resort on this beach. I guess some of the guests got creative and wrote a message in the sand.
Can you see the writing in the sand?
A couple other boats pulled in right behind us. We planned to leave at 7 that evening and travel all night. The other boats were leaving at 2:00 in the morning. We pulled up the anchor just as it was getting dark and took off in rolly seas. We took turns on watch and didn’t see any other boats. The moon was almost full so we had a lot of light. I did see a pod of dolphins jumping along side the boat for 20 minutes. We neared the city and marina of Santa Rosalia just as the sun was coming up. Perfect timing, I love it when a plan comes together.
