Calita Pulpito East, La Guarda – Sept 24 – 26, 2011

Saturday, we moved over into the next bay about 2 miles away. This bay is a little smaller, but we are going to hang around till we hear what Hilary is doing. It is hot, so we put up our shade covers for the first time away from a marina. Rick decided to leave the shade covers up over night, so of course the wind picked up, and at 1:00 in the morning we were on deck tearing down the covers. Lesson Learned: take down the covers every night before going to bed.

All morning, dolphins have been swimming through this bay. You can hear them blow as they pass the boat. They come so close, it is amazing.

This afternoon, 2 other boats pulled into the anchorage. It seems a little crowded in here. But they left the following morning.

Finally, Monday morning we heard that Hilary was slowing down and shouldn’t affect us in the northern sea. We will be heading south this afternoon to the bottom tip of the island, to a place called Isla Estanque. We’ve heard this place has no see ums, but with the wind blowing, it shouldn’t be too bad.
