I'm catching up on the past week's sailing adventures with friends David and Karen aboard, as we had no Internet connection while we were out.

Our first stop was at Playa Bonanza, on the southeast side of Isla Espiritu Santo. We selected this anchorage as it is one of the few to offer some shelter from nighttime coromuel winds (more on that later).

After setting the anchor, we snorkeled around a nearby reef, where we saw all the usual suspects, plus a generous helping of large leopard groupers.

Later in the day, we hiked inland to a ridge separating our cove from Bahia San Gabriel on the west side of the island.

And yes, the coromuel winds did blow during the night, establishing a pattern of nighttime winds that lasted all week.
