Bahia Santa Maria

Bahia Santa Maria is a desolate bay, there's nothing here but some small fish camps. Rugged and beautiful, it's a very well protected bay, although a bit windy at times.

Here we had another beach party, with locals selling big plates of food, beer, and margaritas. They even trucked in a band from La Paz - which doesn't sound like a big deal until you find out they have to get here by driving along the beach for 50 miles, and they can only do it at low tide!

Walking the dingy across the bar (our approach wasn't quite right, but we made it)

Looking out at the bay. The tide came in quickly here, and this beach disappeared very very quickly

The Haha Beach Party. We helped move at least a dozen dingys up above the tide line as the tide came up

The fantastic estuary. The water was warm and a great swim (but watch out for the Pangas!)
