Waiting out the Norther

The wind decided to blow at 20 knots today from the North so we decided to hang for one more day in San Juanico to wait it out. The morning started with 4 sailboats in the anchorage. As the day continued and the wind progressed, 4 more boats came in seeking shelter. The captain is using the down time to "take care of business", pun intended. Since we launched the boat the forward head had not been put into service so today he became a plumber. He wears many hats on board and never ceases to amaze me.

The day started with another run up some dirt roads near the beach. At the top of the second hill is a small house and both days we have been greeted by 2 healer puppies about 4 months old. They are always happy to see us. Puppy kisses and tail wags make that my favorite part of the run. The people that live there are caretakers of the surrounding 3000 acres. They ride around on mules. I may just try to trade some stall cleaning duty for a trail ride. 

Returning to the boat we decided to roll up our sleeves and get to work. Bret started with polishing the BBQ. I spent some time below refinishing some weathered spots on the interior wood. Not wanting to give way to all work and no play, we kicked it to a couple episodes of Breaking Bad and munched on some Halloween candy. 

Tomorrow we plan to get the heck out of dodge and sail south to Isla Coronados. 

Ciao for now,

Marne and The Captain
