Sunset for Malvern Pennsylvania
28 July 2008 | Salinas Puerto Rico
Here it is Kathleen! My dear friend, the former Kathleen Walsh, perhaps the largest Rolling Stones fan ever asked that I pay attention to the smaller details of my good fortune here in the Caribbean. So while having dinner in the cockpit this evening I snapped this sunset picture looking northwest toward the interior of Puerto Rico. It is a very nice part of the day as the trade winds die down and just prior to the Latin beats start thumping on shore.
So I have officially vacated my slip at the marina and am now out in the anchorage until I leave for points east and south. I like being at anchor much better. The wind blows through the boat more efficiently, helping to cool things down. More privacy to. The downside is that I have to shut down the frig and freezer. They simply use to much electricity. My wind generator puts out alot of juice to top up the batteries, but with the heat the refrigerator compressor runs constantly. So what I will do is buy things that need cooling every now and ago and then run the refrigerator for a day or two until I consumed the perishables. So that is it.....more later!
