We are feeling better each day, although neither of us has totally shaken the deep-seated cough which catches hold and doesn't let go. Our stock of Fisherman's Friend cough drops are quite depleted, although there are all sorts of lozenges and cough syrup as backup. You would think with all the sunshine and warm weather we'd bounce right back - that still is the plan! This appears to be a week of milder winds, or almost no winds and flat seas. Several boats are taking advantage of this to travel to the nearby islands for a few days and enjoy the lack of swell and bouncy anchorages...how boring! (We'd love to head out too, but still have a week of classes to complete.) There are many "puddle jumpers" who have or will be setting sail down the coast towards Cabo San Lucas to make the jump to the Marquesas. We wish them all fair winds and not too many squalls along the way.
|Gathering for safety meeting|
|"The Last of Barrett's Privateers"|
|Chris, Jack and Mary Lee - great musicians|
|Organic market at 'postal park'|
|Our transportation - complete with milk carton baskets!|
Later today we are treating ourselves to a concert at La Concha restaurant with Mark Mulligan. He is a 'singer and writer of beach ballads' a la Jimmy Buffet and donates much of his concert revenue to local charities. It should be an enjoyable evening of good music in the open air palapa restaurant.
Hasta luego...INTREPID II back to "22A".
