One of the things we enjoy about traveling is getting to explore each of the new towns that we visit. Yesterday’s rain broke for a period in the afternoon and was replaced by some sunshine and a warm breeze, perfect for an afternoon stroll.
We are currently tied to a seawall in front of two other catamarans, an Island Spirit and a Gemini. After our walk around town, one of the owners of the Island Spirit came over to tell us that there was another cat tied up in the spot where we are now and that in the past 4-5 days, they had been boarded by groups of kids (men?) on 2 separate occasions. Apparently they were onboard both times and managed to scare them off. After filing a police report the second time, they split, which is understandable. We heeded her warnings and kept our boat locked up tight. We had no issues but then again, perhaps burglars don’t like to come out in the rain!
Fortunately we think we have another spot figured out that we will be able to stay at through the festival. We plan to move over there in the next couple of hours.
We crossed this ship’s bow on our way into the harbor, thinking that he was anchored. Fortunately he was going very slowly, being pushed along by a tug.
Out for a stroll.
It looks like we’ll have plenty to explore in the next few days.
No doubt some expensive places to live.
The USS Constellation.
We definitely need to come back and ride these dragons. 🙂
