Leaving Mazatlan, we had such a great sail down (with those awesome dolphins!) that we were tempted to just keep going 🙂 But the lure of Isla Isabela was strong, and as it turned out there was not a boat in sight when we got near, so we dropped the hook and got to enjoy an amazing couple days at one of our favourite stops so far.
But I’ll let the pictures do the story-telling…
We met some new (young!) cruiser friends in the anchorage, hiked around the island, got chased by boobie birds, met a researcher who is living on the island for THREE MONTHS (I like this place, but seriously? Three months with no running water, electricity, or Arrow episodes??) and generally had a great time.
The only dark spot was a first on Brio: a neighbourly boat (very nice, very smiley) anchored a little close… and not wanting to be those people, we tried to just smile and ignore it, since they were not showing any signs of re-anchoring… all was fine until the wind dropped and I woke up to the sound of voices very close, popped my head outside to look around, and was treated to the sight of strangers pushing their boat off our boat. With their feet. I think that qualifies as a little too close, no??
Overall, an amazing spot 🙂
