Isla San Jeronimo to Campo Nuevo

Some other fishermen arrived at the island the next morning and watched us pack to leave.
We paddled only a short distance, and then a 30 knot wind came up and we fought our way to shore at a fish camp near Punta Francisco.
At this fish camp, called Campo Nuevo, lived a man and his family. His two little ninias were curous about us and peaked at us out of their house as we unpacked.

How to use your beat-up "pickup" to get your boat out of the ocean on a rugged shore.
We gave gifts to the ninas and took a family picture before leaving.
We took a ride in the fishermen's truck back to town, hitch-hiked to my truck, and brought it back to load up with our gear.
