Los Islotes

After 5 days of fairly continuous winds, we finally awoke to a calm morning in Ensenada Grande. Good timing to backtrack a mile or so to Los Islotes, where you can swim among a colony of sea lions.

Its a popular day trip from La Paz, and we were able to pick up a mooring buoy instead of anchoring. Once in the water, the sea lions come right up and check you out.

One sea lion became somewhat aggressive and chased Vicki and Karen for awhile. It actually bit Karen on the upper arm and punctured her wet suit. Other than that, it was a joy to be close to these animals!
