|Thanks STEVE for the drone pic!|
It's like we have two lives. We enjoy both so much... but the inevitable wanderlust is strong and it pulls us onward. But again today as with those past departures from our summer home... we are a little sad to leave. So many things we didn't get around to doing... maybe next time.

Marina de Salinas has been good to us and at the end of our last day here, they were good once more. We weren't ready. We had last minute preparations and one more package in the mail that had yet to arrive. They let us stay an extra night for FREE! One more night with air conditioning and no mosquitos!

It was noon and we thought maybe we could make it all the way to Puerto Patillas... but when we motored out into the protected waters of the reef line and the wind picked up... we weren't even making 5 knots...and Jezabelle was already seasick... we asked ourselves why? What's the hurry? We have no particular place to go and all... well, forever... to get there.

As you can see from this Google shot, we are tucked in where the wave pattern hardly effects us at all.
We spent the afternoon getting things down below ready to go out into the waves. It's been so long since we sailed the boat, we've almost forgotten how... We put things that might fly around away and just as we were settling to watch the sundown... Bruce noticed that the refrigeration was blinking a warning light... Low Voltage... WTF!!!
Bruce went down and cleaned the sea strainers, thinking (hoping) that maybe that was causing extra stress on the system and the light went away...
We've been asked where we're going... After having changed our plans a dozen times in the past two days, we've stopped answering that question.
Right now, we are just looking for a place to do some laundry and that's about as far ahead as we can look.
Maybe tomorrow we will have light winds and kindly seas that will allow us to make it all the way around to the east coast of Puerto Rico where we would like to stop at... wait, there I go again. Guess we'll all just have to wait and see!
