No tech stuff today
I had written a technical post but apparently there are some errors in my math that need working out. I guess I’ll have to settle for this today. 🙂
Starting out from Admiralty Bay yesterday. We were actually able to SAIL the entire way to our destination! How nice. One thing we weren’t very happy about is that we saw a cool looking old deserted fort just a short distance along this coast. The guide book makes no mention of it (too busy plugging restaurants I guess). It would have made a nice dinghy trip. Hopefully our friends read this and are able to check it out when they arrive here.
Perhaps we should give up on the fridge and live on fresh fruit and veggies. Here we are trying a starfruit for the first time. This was given to us by our friends Wade and Diane on s/v Joana. Thanks guys, we enjoyed it.
We first dropped the hook in Salt Whistle Bay. The shallow areas were a little crowded but we found a so-so spot. I say so-so because Rebecca was only partially sold on the holding that the bottom offered, amidst the toilet and other garbage that she saw down there. We took a short walk ashore and had what I think was a quasi-expensive beer from a little shack. When the wind shifted 90 degrees and the anchorage developed a nasty swell, we took the opportunity to use the last hour of sunlight to move around the corner to Saline Bay which is much nicer. And it had free wifi which the other bay didn’t. 🙂
Looking up at the village from our anchor spot in Saline Bay.
If the clouds look dark it’s because they are. There is a nice little squall rolling through right now.
