Who turned on the HEAT!!!
23 June 2011 | Bahia Concepcion
Wow, I can't believe that just 3 days ago it was 85 degrees F and the water was 71 degrees F. 40 miles further north and it's 106 degrees F and the water is a hot hot 89 degrees F!!! It's almost uncomfortably hot except when you get out and there is a breeze it feels soooooo good. Not that I'm complaining it's just the facts! This is the hottest weather and water I've ever experienced. I think it will still get even a bit hotter than this so I'll let you know. We are in Bahia Concepcion and it is a big bay, over 20 miles long with lots of little bays within. We have been here for a couple of days now. I had a brief internet connection the other day, but now I don't. Maybe in a few days when we go to a different anchorage we will have it again. One of the reasons we are here, is for the 4th of July party that the weather guy Geary puts on for the cruisers. He lives here year round and every morning on the ham radio he does a comprehensive weather report for the Sea of Cortez. It's all a voluntary thing and it is something that is really important for us cruisers to know what to expect weather wise. So I'm looking forward to meeting him and expressing my thanks for what he does. Things are going well onboard Kasasa. Our biggest concern is keeping the batteries topped up enough to run the refridgeration/freezer. Our compressor is water cooled and with the water this hot well lets just say the fridge is working full time. When we get to Santa Rosalia where I will leave from to head to Canada for a month, Ian wants to take the fridge apart and try to make it more efficient. Sounds like a good thing to do while I'm not on the boat! I guess that's about it for now. No pics because I'm blogging via the ham radio. Even when I do get an internet connection here it is so slow I don't know if I can actually download photos or not. So it may have to wait until we get to Santa Rosalia.
