Our current weather is sunny with "light whispies" overhead with a stronger wind than yesterday. We managed to snag the end spot on the small dock near the dinghy tie-ups, side tied at about 9:30 am. We are washing down INTREPID II to remove 3 weeks of salt spray off every surface and line, then quickly drying all the fresh water off as lots of bees are in the area, all thirsty for fresh water. The dinghy is thoroughly washed and dried, the water tanks filled, and the fuel cans filled with diesel. Now it's time to stop for lunch, get cleaned up and hopefully participate in the Hidden Harbor YC weekly Sunday potluck.
Tomorrow, Monday, if all goes well we hope to make an early start once we've listened to the weather and decide if we try for Bahia Ballandra. It is situated on the north west side of Isla Carmen, about 16 nm or 4 hours away. If conditions don't seem cooperative we will pick another anchorage that offers north, north west wind protection and tuck in there. Or we may find we're back here on a mooring for a few more days. Stay tuned, hope all is going well in your lives and know we think of you often.
