Just the Two of Us :)
Saturday May 20th
Well it’s just the two of us on board for a few days. It’s been years since we sailed as two and it’s pretty special. After dropping Anita and Darrel off yesterday we sailed SE to Isla Carmens’s Marquer anchorage to meet up with Ralph and Helen on Moon Drifter for the first time this season. We were happy to find all well with them. Overnight the anchorage was subject to north swell as we were rocked to sleep. Thankfully things settled down through out the night. Water is crystal clear in the anchorage good temp for swimming. Frankie was busy with organizing our stuff and things on the boat readying for her 2 week stay. We both looking forward to the coming weeks with Bob and Chris joining us this coming week and Al’s birthday cruise with Murril, Al and John and Carol. It’s going to be fun 2 weeks.
Mid day it was time to head to Puerto Escondido and meet up the Rally boats already there. Heading out into the channel towards Escondido we ran into a huge pod of dolphins. Time to lower the sails and motor into the pod. Check out the video.
We find Rally boats Jollydogs, Strickadonia, Stray Cat, Free Luff and now Moon Drifter has joined us. That’s the 6 Rally boats and other boats may be joining us as well. Stray Cat will join us for dinner and haul out at the Escondido marina on Monday so we will be 5 boats on the Rally.
Evening and it’s time to introduce my first mate to the new gourmet restaurant in the marina. Their specialty is scallops and as you see in the photo the food looks and tastes awesome.The restaurant is priced are a little higher than cruisers like and a bit fancy with white table cloths and furniture. All in all a very pleasant day for the two of us and the private dinner with just us was very special.
Rally days begin.. Until the next update
