At the moment the winds coming over the isthmus and blowing out over the Tehuantepec are 35-40 knots, So we wait. Today we went on a bird watching trip with Cornelio Ramos. This capable guide gave us one of the best trips we have been on. He was able to spot birds, describe them, and focus his spotting scope on them with sharp accuracy. We have changed our engine oil and filter, successfully checked our tranny fluid, added 27 gallons of potable water to our tanks, washed the boat down with fresh water. Unfortunately, we don't have electricity. Friday we go scuba diving in the afternoon. And on Saturday, we go to the mountains to a coffee plantation where we will do more birding ... and have some coffee!
