View from Aloft
17 February 2010
This is a view of the entrance/exit to the harbor of Punta del Este. It was taken a few days ago.
I'm at sea, heading up the coast of Brazil now. I planned the departure from Punta del Este closely with the forecasts. Unfortunately for my plan, the wind did not read the forecasts. So the conditions were not what I was hoping for (strong headwinds, lots of steep waves in the shallow waters just off the coast) the first couple of days. The constant waves over the deck did a good job of scrubbing it clean.
Things are much nicer today, with sunny skies and a beautiful light wind that allows the boat to point in the right direction.
