Hello WPC at last. It’s been three months since I was able to post on WPC, because I was traveling on a sailboat in the Sea of Cortez, where there is almost no internet service, and it is so SLOW when it’s available. I’m back in Portland, Oregon for about four months, and enjoying fast internet again.
This picture reminds me of one of the marvelous aspects of sailing in the Sea of Cortez, the snorkeling. Between the surface and the white sand of Puerto Ballandra, near La Paz. Between the rocky shore and the sailboat, Balance. Between the heated top layer of water, and the cold currents below. Swimming between the Sergeant Major fish, with their yellow and black striped bodies.
In Bahia de Conception, we sailed out to an island and anchored to snorkel. Between rocks and sea grasses, beautiful Queen Angelfish, that we’d never seen before, tried to hide. I waited patiently, hovering above with the Go Pro ( I could write a whole blog on how much I love the Go Pro) and finally it swam up close enough to capture it’s puffy lips, gorgeous colors, and iridescent scales, before it swiftly dove between the rocks again.
