Islas Espiritu Santo, Partida and Los Isolotes
Trip Report Part 1; 3-28 through 4-01-02

This was our first campsite
"El Embudo" on the Northern end of Isla Partida The panga dropped us off here after swimming with the sea lions on Los Isolotes.

 We camped to the right of the rock on the North end of the beach.  In Baja, avoid camping directly in the mouth of  a canyon to avoid high winds.
Bring  earplugs because if the South Coromuel wind picks up overnight, this beach is subject to a loud SW  local wind swell.

We paddled through this arch on our way South.

We rounded the point and into "Ensenada Grande"

Our second campsite was at "El Cardonalcito" (facing inland)

and facing out to sea

A full-moon shower of fresh water from this well made it a memorable campsite.
