Culebra to Ensenada Honda..an islolated bay which is a great hurricane hole. Not much to see, but the water is a bit bioluminescent, and no boats other than the Jseppis and Adastra were anchored. Bob, Leo and I wnet fishing off the dinghy, whcih meant I drove and Bob fished. Oh, and Leo jumped off the dinghy. I killed to motor and caught him by his ear, but I'm certain he hasn't leaned any lessons. When we take him to the beach, he rides on the front of the dink and jumps out when we are close. Good thing he stays in the cockpit when we sail.
From Ensenada Honda, we sailed to Ensenada Sun Bay, a beautiful anchorage with a great beach. Of course, when we came in we had not brought in our dinghy and the dinghy line fouled the prop. I'm sure that's never happened to anyone else. ;) Bob donned his snorkeling gear and went at it...with success. I am now the official dinghy captain whcih means it's my responsibility to tell Bob what to do, and I have to admit, I am pretty good at that. On to Esperanza, a tiny coastal town still on the south side of Vieques. Bob and I were here on a charter boat in 2006, and not much has changed. Altough i very nice local woman did say that all the real estate is being scooped up by Americans, and most of the businesses are now American owned. It's a shame because this a a great little place. We had drinks and appetizers at Bananas while we played dominoes, the best way to waste an afternoon.
