El Gulfo Oct `04 (click for larger pictures, then use the back button on your browser)

At 2:00 AM, after driving all night trying to catch up with the rest of the group, we were cut off by high tide, so we literally just pulled of to the side of the road, threw out our bedding, and slept.

But what a sight to wake up to...

After making the way down the beach to the rest of the group Saturday morning we launched the sail boat...

The surf was not as calm as the last time I was down and it made for some choppy sail boat entries, but it was great for surfing in the kayaks (or at least attempting to surf ;-)

While Capt. Pat took two passengers out on a sail, the rest of us hung out on the beach...

A perfect sunset to end the day...

Same shot as above, but lightened...

The camp site Sunday morning...

Sunday proved for much smoother sailing...

While again those not sailing hung out on the beach... life is rough!

   I see a bird, I see a bird!

   Gosh gees darn-it, they got away!

Loading up the next crew of sailers...

There were bones from a whale washed ashore down the beach aways...

The part we were all dreading, having to pack up and leave for civilization....

Oops one got stuck on the way out of camp. Note Ed's obligatory one finger salute. Sorry Ed, just had to take a picture of pulling someone else out! PS Ed the next time I am stuck and you get photographs I will trade you negatives ;-)
