Anchored

Sunday – Huw continues with electrics and Bernice with some more cleaning too. There’s Macaroni on the menu for dinner tonight but it turns out a bit salty due to choice of cheese we think.
Monday – is a bank holiday here. We get to finally meet the Czech crew ( Mila & Marketa) as they return having slept on beach all night – arrived back late last night and didn’t want to disturb us to come pick them up. They’ve had a great time around the island and are buzzing with stories. They went ashore to catch up on emails etc and and missed an invite to another Aussie boat – ‘sunburnt’. Good fun evening was had by all. There were 3 couples and guy from 4 other boats – sunburnt, dream catcher, sealife and cosi-mos….. (we think)
Tuesday – we go ashore and check out some shops, essentially looking for a pipe-cleaner for our camelbaks when we come across bargain new walking sandals for Bernice :0). We also decide to investigate an address at the port for having some mail sent to us as we’re going to be here longer than expected. After this we shop for some snacks as Ozzie has invited all the aussie guys from last night onto our boat. It was again a fun night as we gathered more info about types of boats and the pros and cons of life at sea. One couple left Australia 10 years ago and haven’t got back yet! They’re on their way back now though. Bernice had a rough nights sleep last night, thirst getting the better of her as she wasn’t so keen to quench it with the home made water on board (most boats going across oceans have water makers – take onboard sea water and de-salinate it (take salt out it)) it being made from water around this busy industrial port.
Wednesday – we’re sail mending in the morning – there are repairs that need re-repairing! Then in the afternoon we go ashore to see John and Cindy, John we met last week.
Looks like we’ll be here till early next week maybe till the 10th ….. Hhmmm
Thursday – woke up v v close to another boat and we had to lift anchor and move boat back away from it. Expecting rest if our crew today. M&M are thinking of going away for weekend as we’ll be here longer now. We might try and catch up with Siobhian again if we are here that long. See how things pan out after tomorrow and Huw’s birthday
