We spent the last week hanging out in Puerto Ballandra doing boat maintenance. Ballandra is an uninhabited bay on Isla Carmen about 16 miles north east of Puerto Escondito. The bay has room for twenty boats in 20-30 feet, sand bottom. We had gale force winds a couple afternoons, but most of the days there were no other boats so we had 210′ of chain out. Obviously we held.
We met Adios and Salty from the Hidden Port Yacht Club.
We watched fish around the edges of the bay. We also went for several walks on shore. The desert is fairly lush, and as usual starts only a few feet from the high tide line.
