Mar 7-9: Passage from the Espiritu Santo islands to Ensenada de Los Muertos to Los Frailes to Cabo San Lucas, lots of relaxing sailing, a pack of crazy manta rays, and a ton of whale sightings along the way

We couldn't just lie around in paradise all week - although we really really wanted to! - so we were up early for the day-long passage to Ensenada de Los Muertos.
