Capt Rich
Following a breakfast of scrambled eggs and potatoes wrapped in a tortilla and topped with fresh avocado two different salsas, we pulled our anchor and started our motor trip north to Agua Verde. I suspected that the night wouldn't be the best for sleeping, and that guess proved true until the 25-30kt winds died around midnight, leaving us as instantly as they had started.

The trip was a straight forward motor with the only wind to be seen puffing on our nose and as the day progressed this lack of wind combined with the temperature of 98 Deg made us feel like we were in a desert in the summer for the first time. As I type this at anchor, it is currently 93 degrees in the boat with the only wind movement coming from our 12v fan and the occasional panga that speeds by our boat so close as to create a wind vortex. I'll admit it, for the first time today, I thought about our secrete weapon: a 5000Btu window air conditioning unit that I can run off of our Honda generator for about 6hrs on a single tank of gas.

I'm still a little depressed after working my way through the dirt road town without finding the much talked about Aqua Verde fresh goat cheese. Fishing and goat rearing are the big activities in Aqua Verde, so where there are goats, there is goat cheese. All that the local tienda had was a log of Costco Monterey Jack. I didn't buy the Monterey Jack for two reasons. First, I was set on goat cheese and second, the refrigerator, lying on it's back and filled with block ice to keep the contents cold, seemed to me as warm as the outside temperature and upon inspection I failed to actually see any ice. I assume the ice truck comes on Saturdays, and it's a stretch to make the ice last a full week in a 20yr old GE refrigerator laying on it's back having been converted into a makeshift Ice Box, in the 98 degree heat. But then again, in a town without electricity, what good would a refrigerator actually be anyway?

The kids are yelling for me to jump in the water with them, and with even my fingers starting to sweat, that sounds like the sensible thing to do at this point. We anticipate staying here a few days and I filled our two SCUBA tanks this afternoon in plans of making a dive with Jason tomorrow.
