Finished up a 101 ASA basic Keel boat class today with Jon and Laura from Tucson. Jon is a private pilot so teaching an ASA 101 for those guys is as we say in Spanish, Pan Comido, a piece of cake. I forgot my camera today but Jon just sent me these pics. We found the local pod of bottle nose dolphins in front of the Posada today and they hung on the bow wave for several passes and then of course the red algae was wild looking. Winds were around 10 to 13 knots as predicted so it was a damn nice day out there. Thanks to Jon and Laura for taking the course!!!
I really love the Red Algal Bloom shots that Jon took today, some of the images remind me of a shot you might get from the Hubble Space Telescope of a gaseous nebula thousands of light years away. We should not forget that the first real European name for the Gulf of California came from Cortes. He called it the Vermillion Sea because of these red algal blooms.
