Leaving San Juanico we decided to explore the west side of Isla Carmen. Great decision. Carmen is one of the few islands in the Sea of Cortez that are privately owned. Rumor has it that the island is owned by Mexico's ex president from the early nineties who gave Carlos Slim the Telmex cell phone concession, thereby proving it's who you know. Bahia Salinas was once a salt mining operation and exploring what is left of the village you can still find the original payroll safe in the main office building, but the salt ponds were the real prize here.
We miss our fourth crew member Daisy on our first lengthy sail without her. Ginger shows signs of her absence as well. She’s never been left alone on the boat before, always with Daisy. Now when left, she barks until we return. We anchor a significant distance from other cruisers to save them from her anxiety. Hopefully she will get used to being the only four legged on board soon.
