29 February 2008 | Spanish Water
There are many neat places around Spanish Water. The main anchorage in the north west provides good access to transportation and the main cruiser hangouts in the harbor.
The south anchorage, my favorite, is quiet and less windy and also right across from the beach and dive shop (pictured). Other areas have their advantages as well.
Many cruiser hang outs have a special place that caters to the needs of the sailing wayfarer. In Isla Margarita it is Juan's Marina. In Curacao it is Sarifundy. At Sarifundy cruisers can grab food, get a drink, send and receive mail, do laundry, get all of the necessary info on clearance/transportation and provisioning along with various other conveniences.
Hideko and Em took a free trip to the market from Sarifundy's this morning and I met them later in the day for a nice light lunch and some cold drinks.
