Punta Bluff is located approximately seven miles below San Carlos and at best, is a poor anchorage.  
The author stopped and anchored here due to fatigue and also due to the fact that headwind and
weather were encountered at this point making a crew rest advisable.  Shelter is poor and if any sea
state at all enters the anchorage it is going to be untenable.  At about 1:00 A.M., a Santa Ana type wind of
about 40 kts blew over the cliffs in the foreground creating a disturbing racket but since there was
nothing but open ocean to lee, the author resacked, the anchor held.
