I'm Lonely

10 November 2011 | Barra/Colomilla

I spent one extra night in La Cruz so I could visit with Tom And Barbara on Hooligan There launching was postponed because of travel-lift problems. Sailed out of La Cruz while the weather window was still good. It was an uneventful overnighter and the wind was lighter than expected. As I was starting my entrance to the lagoon in Barra, a panga pulled up alongside of me. I looked over and saw that it was Enrique, Yoanas' dad, just coming in from a morning of fishing. This is the first time I was greeted by a friend as I was making landfall. As I was motoring down the channel I looked way ahead to the lagoon and there was no cruisers there....I was the first cruiser to arrive this season. I've been here 3 days and there still isn't another cruiser in the anchorage....It's very lonely here....even a little spooky. Normally, we have to jockey around for the best spot to anchor, but I had the pick and of course I took my regular spot at the Isla. I took a bus to Manzanillo to do my banking and really enjoyed the day. I don't know if I will like having my car down here because taking the bus from place to place is enjoyable and inexpensive. Because of the hurricane that just passed through here a few weeks ago, the bug infestation is horrendous. I'm sitting here at Mary's restaurant on the lagoon and having a delicious Dorado Mexicana dinner while the bugs are eating me. Sunday or Monday should see me travelling north by bus and Tom's car to retrieve my car and all the paint and supplies for the torture I'm about to indulge in. The photo is of the Sea-Masters restaurant that slid into the ocean because of the hurricane.
