Hiking and Sailing with Eyoni, one last time

In early June we were glad to see our dear friends, Nancy, Ethan, and Zada, aboard their boat, Eyoni, arrive into Puerto Escondido, our home port.  We spent a day hiking a nearby canyon none of us had hiked before.  We found tadpoles, mountain goats, and a swimming hole in the middle of the trail!?!

How does it do that?

Mountain goats scrambled above us when they heard our footsteps on the gravel.
To continue on the trail we had to swim through the pond.

Finding tadpoles!

The next day we sailed alongside Eyoni to Isla Monserrat, a few miles off the shore of Loreto.  We had the beach to ourselves, the kids had a blast snorkeling in clear and warm waters, Ethan and Doug caught tons of lobster and fish, and that night we feasted! Good friends, good food, good days!!

Catch of the day...or should I say the week!!

And a sleepover on Eyoni after it all!
