After a week on Isla Carmen we were pleased to find out that the anchorage on Isla Coronada had a much better breeze and the nighttime temperature inside the boat was in the low 80's - making sleep much more comfortable.
We had been warned about bees here but the first few days were peaceful... until the bees found our boat! Our swimstep collects puddles of fresh water when we rinse after swimming and the bees were thirsty. Luckily they were not agressive and no one (on our boat) was stung.
The beaches are beautiful white sand and the shallows perfect for wading. While I was standing knee deep in the water talking with Kyra and Rick from sv Nyon I felt something slimy pass by my leg. I shrieked and looked down to see a huge eel. After we all ran back to the safety of shore Mike started splashing around and the slimy creature swam right up to him.
