May 4, Bahia Marquer, Isla Carmen

We got up at a little before 6am this morning to make an assault on the lobsters that would be roaming about finishing up their evening feeding.  Cold air, cold water but all worth it. Right?  WRONG!  Gregg, myself and two from the sailboat Makai were along for the lobster dive.  I offered to get in and check it out and then when it was confirmed that it was easy pickins we would all get in and put away enough lobster to last a year. haha.  Well, I was in the water for about 40 minutes and saw exactly nothing!  It was a cold 40 minutes and I am a little stumped as to why we didn't see anything.  I...I didn't see anything. lol.  Anyway we got skunked on the lobster so we came back, made some coffee and watched a movie at 7 am in the morning.  Doesn't everyone watch a movie at 7am?  We pulled out of Danzante with a slight breeze and quickly turned off the motor to enjoy a peaceful sail for the short 6 miles or so we had to go.  The sail didn't last very long before it was dead calm and glassy so we motored the rest of the way in.

This afternoon found us diving off of the point with Makai looking for whatever we could find to add to the dinner menu.  Gregg was instructed on scallop harvesting by Jackie on Makai and the three of them got some scallops that we will put along side marinated steak  then followed by some birthday cake and Kahlua brownies for Eric's birthday today.  btw, the snorkeling was super awesome although the water is about 72 degrees which is a little bit chilly.

I just finished squeezing several fresh oranges for orange juice and put the brownies in the oven for tonight's meal with Makai.  The day has been peaceful and we are looking forward to spending time with our friends this evening.  Not much else to report. Ciao for now.
