Our stay in los Frailes was a disappointment. As soon as Melissa and I got into the water to snorkel on the nearby reef, a park ranger came by and told us the park was closed due to the pandemic. This is Semana Santa, a weeklong holiday in Mexico, and the government is trying prevent the usual hordes of families from descending on the beaches. We dutifully got back on the boat frustrated by the fun-sucking complications this virus has wrought.
So we moved our departure date up and left Monday morning (the sixth). The winds are a bit stronger than predicted and we are flying the cruising spinnaker with main on a beam reach. Very lovely. We will fly the spinnaker until the wind builds or just before sunset.
This is my first attempt to post a photo to our blog using the sat phone.
