Although it meant spending Christmas Day at sea, we decided not to ride out an approaching storm in the exposed anchorage at Turtle Bay. Dolphins put on a great show for us all day, and a spectacular phosphorescent ballet all night.

Evidence of a storm– beds of shells 15 meters above sea level and a mile into the dunes…

The town of Puerto Magdalena hosted a great New Years Eve dance. The large building to the far right (painted with a sign) was the venue.

A quiet anchorage can be found inside the barrier islands at Bahia Magdalena.

Our first glimpse of Mexico was the giant flag, which may be seen from space.

Hiking the dunes with ‘Ladybug’…

The colored building on the left of the main street is the Turtle Bay school.
We bought oranges from the back of a truck.
