La Ventana

Left Balandra on Saturday after a bad night's sleep with strong (20-25kt) S-SSE winds. Anchor was well-set but had to be sure of that before I could settle down in my bunk around 2 am.
Passed through San Lorenzo Channel -slow progress made with headwind and some current. On down the Canal Cerralvo, past barren uninhabited Isla Cerralvo to Bahia La Ventana for a secure overnight anchorage
The long sandy spit of Punta Arena de La Ventana gives perfect protection from any SE wind! Two other boats were there overnight including friends on 'Sands-End' who left well before dawn to make San Jose del Cabo - a good distance away.
I had a good night's sleep in calm, peaceful conditions. Bright crescent moon was seen for a time after a lovely sunset over the Baja hills beyond the sweeping sandy Bay of La Ventana.
Light winds are forecast for several days here on E and SE tip of the Baja but N winds ~15kt are forecast on the SW coast - not good for heading N just now . I'll stay today and possibly tomorrow before heading further S - I've several boat jobs I can do while here.
This is a popular kite boarding spot so maybe I'll see some fun if there's some breeze today.
