Islas Espiritu Santos
After a week in La Paz we headed over to some of the Islands North in the Sea of Cortez: Espiritu Santo and Isla Partida. Our friend Gil was visiting from Seattle so we decided to run from civilization for a couple of days and go diving and fishing in the islands. Calleta Partida, the anchorage we stopped in was gorgeous. The water is aqua marine, green and gin blue depending on the depth and how much sand is on the bottom. We anchored in aqua marine and swam and dingied to the light blue gin.
The anchorage is surrounded by red stone desert high cliffs, dotted with green for the cacti and white for the sand.
We found some great spots for snorkeling and diving and we will surely be back for more!
We’re now back in La Paz for a day to run some errands, and we’ll be back in the islands next week. Will probably trade some fish for the traditional Turkey for Thanksgiving :)
