Delay in Departure

23 April 2012
Blowing like snot
Our plan was to leave today and head South, but that has changed. The winds have been from the West one day then North the next at 20 gusting to 40 so our new departure date from our happy new home of El Milagro looks like Wednesday maybe Thursday. The winds then will be from the East which will give us a beam reach on our SSW course. Nancy's back went out on Saturday and she's been in quite a lot of pain. We found a pharmacy to get pain meds which helped some. This morning on the cruisers net we summoned chiropractor Steve who gave her an adjustment. That was a few hours ago, and with a few beers and and few pills she is doing much better. We are spending today on the beach in lounge chairs under a nice palm tree watching the water lap the boats, and birds fly in a comfortable 15 kt breeze. The Dr. thinks with a day or two of rest Nancy will be back good as new. We will wait here for as long as it takes for her to recover as the winds will be in our favor for the next 10 days and we are only traveling for a day.
