Under way at last

Friday, March 16. Rana Azul. We are finally off! We left the dock a little after 1:00 PM and had a delightful sail to Tierra Oscura. It had rained off and on all morning while we finished loading the boat, but in between, the sun shown too. As we said good-bye to Paula & Bill, our land bound neighbors, and headed out there was a large black cloud coming down Bahia Almirante towards us. There were white caps under it, but not too big so we put the sails up figuring if we had to get wet at least we would have wind to sail. We never got wet! We did get the wind and had a really nice sail all the way down Bahia Almiante and up Dolphin Bay. After sailing through the cut and entering Laguna Paulos, we dropped sails and anchored in the bay just outside our fried Cynde's house. By the time we were settled at anchor and had changed our clothes, Capt. Ron picked us up and gave us a ride to Rana Azul for dinner. We had a delightful time. Maria had made cerviche, stuffed peppers, and coffee crème for desert. Many of our friends were there and all wished us well on our trip. We were disappointed that none of the other boats headed North made it as I had announced it on the morning VHF net. Oh well, we will talk with them tomorrow and finalize plans.
