Racing into Agua Verde – May 7-9, 2012

Monday morning we pull up the anchor and motored 18 miles north to Agua Verde. Just as we were entering the bay and heading for the small southern lobe, we saw another boat leave the northern lobe and head toward the bay we wanted. He picked up speed, so we picked up speed. The race was on. He arrived just ahead of us and started checking the depth. We had been here before and knew where we wanted to be. We pulled into the center and dropped the hook. He circled around a bit and found a spot off to one side. This left room for ‘True Companion’ who were sitting back, watching and laughing at this comotion. Later, we met up with the couple and had a good laugh.
The Boat We Raced

The rest of the day was spent shopping at the tienda for vegetables and beer, and buying fish from the local fishermen. That evening we went to ‘True Companion’ for cocktails and learned to play Cribbage. Back at the boat we cooked up the fish (Cabrillo) and I must say it was the best fish I have ever cooked. We even had it the next day for fish tacos.
