Culebra to St Augustine - Days 1 -3

Once again, it was a flurry of activity as we prepared to up-anchor and head out from Culebra to St Augustine. We woke with the dawn, checked the weather again, and after a cuppa and a few more checks, we were off across Ensenada Honda on an overcast morning and heading back into the Caribbean Sea. We’d [...]

Heading to St. Augustine

I know, I know … we were supposed to head over to San Juan for a few days and hang out, but surprise! We’ve changed our minds. We’re looking at the calendar, feeling pressed to be moving north more quickly than we’d prefer, but hurricane season is soon upon us and the further north we are, the [...]

Tarpons, Seagulls and Cold Beer

Despite all the very appealing local restaurants we’ve seen, we really haven’t eaten out at all since we arrived in Culebra. Each morning we agree “Let’s have dinner out tonight” and every evening, it’s “Feel like going in to shore for dinner or shall we just make something aboard and watch [...]

Blue View - Patching the Dinghy

Our venerable dinghy is well into her ninth year aboard Nine of Cups. She's seen a lot of nice soft sand beaches, but she's also seen her share of barnacle encrusted, concrete jetties, rocky shores and coral reefs. On several occasions, she's gotten roughed up by an amorous fisherman's panga as well. [...]

Culebra Signs and Street Art

Though our stay in Culebra has been short, we've managed to walk around a bit and gather a few signs and street art pix for our ever-growing collection. Thought you'd enjoy seeing a few that we thought were especially interesting. Unfortunately, I'm not able to post pix or links on SailBlogs at the moment. You'll have to head on over to JustALittleFurther.com to view the sign/street collection.

Rotten eggs and other boat smells

One of the things about boats is they smell. Sometimes it's the garlic and onion you're sauteing, but more likely it's something else or a combination of "something elses". My sister, Lin, always hugs me rather tenuously when we first arrive home after a long stay on the boat and wrinkles [...]

Howling hot

24 February 2012 | Port Davey, Tasmania
Marcie
It was hot today ... over 80F/27C by midday with strong N/NW winds. We had every intention of moving to another anchorage, but there was little incentive to do so. Though the wind whizzes over the hills and howls through this cove, the anchor was well stuck and we didn't budge. No other anchorage close to us appeared to have any better protection, so in Schooner Cove we stayed. With 25kt+ of wind, despite the heat, we kept to the boat. Friends aboard "Kestrel" are also here in Port Davey and we chatted with them on the radio, but like us, they had decided to stay put in another anchorage east of us off the Bathurst Channel. Similar winds and temps are forecast for tomorrow, but things promise to cool down and calm down early in the week which will afford us the opportunity to explore a bit.
