|INTREPID II once again settled into dry storage|
A link for anyone who might want to check out the accommodations:
Today (Friday) was part two of moving INTREPID II back into the dry storage yard. Kelly ensured she was settled in and secured for the Sonoran spring, summer, fall. There will be blazing sun (it is already hot), gritty winds, thunderstorms; hopefully no hurricanes track this far north!
Although the sailing opportunities did not arise, there was time to make new friends, connect with a few from previous years, battle the "bo-bos" and wish for the air conditioning unit that was sold for a song last season. He pondered the whys and wherefores of what kept causing the Internet to go down at the marina. Thank goodness for the cell phone data plan! Kelly took on the task of 'weather reader' on the morning net when most people could not get wifi.
Happily, after many attempts, the stars aligned to actually do the hike in the Nacapule Canyon with intrepid fellow hiker Ken H. Pictures to be downloaded; in the meantime here's a link:
Looking forward to hearing about the hike details...stay tuned.
This event comes "Highly Recommended": the annual 'melodrama' to raise funds for the Rescate services of San Carlos area. Lots of fun, laughter and for a good cause. Keep it in mind for next year if you are in San Carlos at this time.
Tomorrow (Saturday) is Departure Day. The Captain is still sorting out his itinerary it seems.
