We flew the spinnaker with only a whisper of wind. We set anchor (N20°44.855' W105°22.159') once again just as the golden sun was setting in perfectly calm seas at 17:30 on the 14th. Yeah, I know, almost 3 hours to go 15 km but it was a great way to spend an afternoon lazing in the sun, reading and watching the spinnaker fly.
Slow trip, minimal wind, but still sailing!
Early this morning after making some water, we went ashore to explore La Cruz and do some Skyping (making calls using our I-Touch "phone" with Skype). Then back at Sea Turtle, in Jordan's words:
We must send our auto-pilot back to Seattle WA to be repaired before leaving La Cruz, here's hoping that it won't take too long......took in the dusk surroundings. The sun had just gone down leaving the sky a pinkish-orange at the horizon, fading to a pastel blue above, with the 3/4 moon above. I counted 43 sailboats that were now becoming silhouettes on a steely-silvery bay. They were all facing the setted sun and their masthead anchor lights were coming on. It reminded me of being at a rock band concert when the band had finished and left the stage. But the audience wouldn't leave, all looking at the stage, and throughout the crowd they were lighting their lighters, waiting for another song or 2 before it was finally over.
