We took a little break from galley cooking while in Agua Verde. Clif made an actual Valentine's Day reservation with a small palapa-restaruant on the beach, run by several local ladies. We dined under a little palm-fronds roof on homemade chicken mole! My first meal of authentic chicken mole since Sound Discovery has been in Mexican waters. (My Dad will understand why this is a milestone, I've been asking for mole in restaurants since we started sailing down the outside coast.) It lived up to all of my expectations!

Yesterday, Clif, Rob and I took a day trip across Baja to see the Gray Whale mama and baby pairs rearing in the shallow, protected waters near Lopez Mateo. This time we hired our own panga to take us our and saw dozens of mama-baby pairs, so many excited to play and interact! Rob was up front in the panga when one of the young calves was swimming back and forth under the bow of the panga and got some good whale pets in! We also were fortunate enough to see a mama Gray do several "head-slap," bringing her head all the way our of the water and looking and the world around. Another amazing day out there getting close to the curious and playful whales!

Until then, we are going to soak up as much sun as possible--- wearing sunscreen and working hard to make sure I'm tan-line free for wedding dress time!
Looking forward to seeing family and friends as we move up the west coast!
