//WL2K Agua Verde
Good morning! The weather is sunny and still a cool 70 degrees this morning, and we are enjoying a cup of coffee in a beautiful, well protected cove in Agua Verde. Steve and Genny were on the beach waiting for us at their very cozy campsite when we got here. We were able to anchor just off the beach so close you could easily swim over to them.
The fishing has been poor here, but we have caught a few smaller fish that we released. I read that this area all the way to Loreto has been severely overfished and now has some of the worst fishing in all of Baja.
We also did some snorkeling, which was fun, but I think I saw more trash on the bottom than fish. I even saw a pair of pants standing upright on the bottom with their waist down and feet up so that it looked like someone dove head first into the water and get stuck in the sand up to their waist.
Our Current Position:
We’ll be leaving this morning for Puerto Escondido and should arrive this afternoon.
It sounds glorious!! Outside of the trash and spooky upright-underwater pants….that would have freaked me out a bit….xox
Stay in the waiting room and cruise around and ask if there is a mooring ball available. People own them but some put their boat up on the hard so the mooring is empty, very friendly and helpful people. We know the red boat from Edmonton, the first mooring I think. Stay out of the main anchorage, bad holding and the moorings are not safe. Say hi to Pedro for us, he runs the store and restaurant in the marina. We always buy our pork chops from him.
If you stop at Agua Verde on the way back, it’s a good place to find pin scallops. Look in chest deep water near sand/reef and you’ll see little “tacos” facing up in the sand. Grab, twist, and pull these out and they are the tops of huge cone-shaped bivalves. Break off the pointy end on a rock and you can get a little knife in there and take out a scallop.
