It is Friday, May 17, 2019 and everything is fine here on the Milagro. We weighed anchor this morning leaving Point Nopolo behind in favor of Puerto Ballandra on Isla Carmen, about 12nm East from Nopolo and Loreto. We have friends who love Ballandra and spend much of their time anchored there. While we don’t love Ballandra the way they do we wanted to enjoy their company for a few days so we’ll have a visit then move along. It was a motorboat ride for us as we needed to run our engine to make water anyway and that process consumed most of the time it took to cover the short distance. Our anchor is set at 26 01.178’N, 111 09.960’W in 35′ over mixed sand and gravel. The OAT is 80F and the pool, with about 20′ of visibility, is 78F. The wind is from the NE at 11kts gusting to 18 but our spot is well protected from wind in that direction so we’re sitting on flat water. We’ll be back in a couple of days with the next update.
