Is the heat off?

We?¢â??¬â??¢re learning that the intense heat we felt in Bahia Concepcion was about as hot as it ever gets. In fact, we haven?¢â??¬â??¢t felt anything near that hot for 4 weeks now. After we left Santa Rosalia the temperature has been cooler, about 85 to 90 and the water is a nice 78 or so. Other people who have spent the summer further north tell us that Bahia Concepcion is sort of a heat trap and that Bahia de Los Angeles stays cool by comparison.

The sea life has been incredible. There are lots of whales, Orcas, Pilots, Sperm, and Grays. Many different types of dolphins and tons and tons of fish, squid, and octopus roam these waters too. We?¢â??¬â??¢ve seen all types of sea birds from pelicans to these brown dove-like little sea birds which aren?¢â??¬â??¢t in our book.

There has been a nice breeze for the past 3 days keeping everything cool. This is the Sea of Cortez at its greatest! I feel sorry for all those boats who bailed out of Mexico for the summer, but that leaves more wilderness for us!
