We needed to get a few groceries, so we decided to take advantage of the calm weather by anchoring directly off of Loreto, one of the most historic cities along the coast. Founded in 1697, it was the capital of both Alta and Baja California (before being moved to Monterey 80 years later), and it was the headquarters for the Jesuits who built the California missions.

Nowadays, its a pretty sleepy town based on tourism and sportfishing, and a nice place to get off the boat and stretch your legs.
