Darrell
Well these first few days on the boat have been a whirlwind of activity. It started with Jim, Colton, Curtis and myself diving on the boat to clean what was clearly a Japanese buffet on the hull. But I have to say that we all love the Micron 66 that the Boatyard at Grand Marina put on (thanks Neil!). It was nice getting back in the water after a month as well. We moved Sweet Dreams and Rubber Duckies from Las Hadas to Santiago Bay the same day we moved back aboard. Something about having enough of the Macarrana and Gungam Style ;-) The first couple of days here where pretty quiet. Jim and I took what ended up being an 8 mile walk into Santiago to look for some boat and fishing supplies, we have been doing movie nights on both boats.

But last night was a highlight for Marcus. His friend Isaac and our friend, his mother, Nancy came out to visit on the boat. We had the crew from Duckies and Sweet Dreams and it was a very nice evening. Nancy introduced us to a local liqueur, Cola Blanca, made from Peanuts and Almonds. It's quiet scrumptious. Marcus even got out for a dinghy ride. The boys got the surfboards out and did some dinghy surfing and Isaac even got up for some nice rides. Marcus sat on the deck of Duckies with score cards!

Today Jim and I are going to scuba Elephant Rock and see what that has to offer. Tomorrow is the big day for Marcus, it is hopefully his last checkup. If we get back to the boat soon enough we are going to sail down to Barra de Navidad on Monday, otherwise it's Tuesday morning. Well, no internet, no photos sorry. Hopefully when we get to Barra and I connect at the Sands Hotel and upload some new content.

All in all, Marcus' recover is moving along spectacularly.

Cheers!
