Campo Naranjo. Probably a bit to far south to see him? Saw only groups of three to five paddling on Saturday. I think it was windy on the 9th??

Graham is in really great shape for this type of paddle.
We had dinner together a couple of weeks ago, and he looked fairly buff!

Wow! Thanks David for posting all those Spot locations and watching out for me. Nice to review and remember. Wonderful trip. Wind with me most of the way. Knew enough to get my overloaded sit-on-top ashore when blowing too much. Can hardly wait to do next stage... Loreto to La Paz.
