The Captain is somewhat incommunicado at the moment as his well behaved laptop waited until he arrived in San Carlos to act up. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the glitches will be identified, rectified and banished, allowing Kelly to once again connect to cyber space.
Our conversations via Mexican cell phone to Canadian land line, or Skype to Mexican cell have necessarily been as brief as possible. Not inexpensive, but necessary. What I've learned to date: the rudder is being investigated, contact has been made with the diesel mechanic; he's had an onsite inspection of the transmission, and further checking is underway. The details will follow when the ups and downs of boat maintenance and computer surprises are under control.
In the meantime, we've had fog this morning. It's a moody, misty, West Coast atmosphere. Light rain followed, then that elusive sunshine and finally more dumping down rain. Nothing boring about the weather today.

"We miss you Dad! Hope everything starts to fall in place soon and you can enjoy that lovely weather - send some home too!"
