Today was our first full day exploring Baja California. In the morning we sailed the calm waters just south of Isla del Carmen and ultimately made our way to the tiny island of Danzante. Here we were introduced to the intersection where desert meets the sea. We snorkeled from an intimate white sandy beach and hiked among the vibrant and diverse flora that calls this island home.
Highlights underwater included brightly colored fish, bumpy sea stars, and camouflaged balloon fish. On our hikes we found a couple of sedate chuckwallas, fiery red blossoms on Palo Adan, and delicate blue flowers of desert morning glory. A lovey beginning to a week of adventure.
