On our way north to Puerto Escondido we stopped at Caleta Candeleros Chico (Little Candlestick Cove). This is a small indention in the rugged cliffs that can hold one or two boats at anchor. We were the only ones there except for the birds and fish. It was a great place to dive.
Heading into the cove; we really couldn’t see the entrance until we were right up on it.
The surrounding rocks being slowly eroded away.
A shy Baloonfish (in Spanish, globo-botete), hiding among the rocks on the bottom. They’re usually the first fish to come check out the bottom of the boat when we anchor. You see these poor little guys dried out and puffed up for sale in the tourist shops. Bummer.
While in the water here I dove on the boat and replaced the sacrificial zincs on the shaft and prop. It’s not all play.
