Sea of Cortez: San Evaristo

San Evaristo is a fishing village of around 20 families a good days travel for us north of LaPaz.  It’s protected anchorage sheltered us as we waited for another round of northerlies to die down.  We walked the village from one end to the other, buying fresh eggs at one end of the cove and fresh fish from a panga at the other.  In San Evaristo we learned that the fishing had been poor this season and the villages were feeling the pain.

Our friends from Discovery, who visited the village weeks earlier, told us to make sure to pick up fresh eggs.   Although not marked, it was easy to find the house with the eggs just down this dirt path.

We caught these fishermen just as they landed on the beach.  They quickly cleaned the fish, which provided several meals for us.
