Early this morning we were awaken by a strange sound. When you live on something that is floating on water and could at any minute sink from under you....you become very in tune to any kind of noises. I immediately jumped up to investigate and was surprised to see a strange wet substance falling from the sky. OK...so I know that we aren't going to get a whole lot of sympathy given that this is the first time I've seen rain since cruising Baja (total of 6 months).....but I then had to do the unthinkable and throw on a sweatshirt and long pants. Soooo here is where our friends rolling their eyes in cooler climates are going to get a little revenge. We then had to take the dinghy in to the marina area, fill it up with the 15 gallons of drinking water that were still in the rental car.....take the water back to Si Bon.....get back into the dinghy and go turn the freaking car in. After donning our rain gear, as if on que., as soon as I stepped into the dink the wind and rain hit with a vengeance....kinda like a big wet slap in the face.
So in between waves soaking us, Sharon and I quickly decided that we need to head south sooner rather than later.....we'll be leaving Puerto Escondido tomorrow morning and beelining it for La Paz, where we heard on the radio net this morning that it was 81 degrees. We won't have internet access until La Paz which should be within 1 week.....unless it warms up along the way.
