Isolation Vacation is over and it's back to the barn for Cetus!
19 July 2020 | Puerto Escondido, BCS, Mexico
Cetus tucked in to her slip in Marina Chica
We enjoyed one last sunrise swim at Bahia Marquer Saturday morning before hoisting the anchor and heading back into Puerto Escondido for Phase 1 of the big haul-out.
So for the next couple weeks we will be tackling all the little chores necessary to get Cetus ready to be lifted out of the water for 2 months on the hard.
The first order of business was to install an air conditioning unit to keep the temps inside livable for the next week while we're still onboard here in the marina. Next week we will be in the little apartment at nearby Hotel Tripui but we will still be coming down to work on the boat everyday and we will also need the a/c while doing inside work when she's in the yard beginning the first of August.
So while we'd much rather be out isolating in the islands we are enjoying the "luxuries" of dock life: unlimited water and power!
And we are looking forward to the next couple months finally being able to get lots of projects done while living in the small apartment that has other little luxuries such as a full size refrigerator!
On the COVID front it seems cases here are going down with more recovered than active cases and only 3 deaths in the Loreto area. That said I don't know that testing is very extensive, but it is a small community and I haven't heard any alarming reports.
For the most part everyone is keeping with the masks, distancing and disinfecting routines, however, as in the States, some are slacking off and the most worrisome is that they have started opening back up to tourism with flights going to and from the States once again.
While we won't be out in the islands we feel confident that we can still stay safe -- it just takes a little more thought than when we're out on the boat far from everything.
So we will be wearing our masks, distancing, disinfecting and washing our hands and hope all of you are doing the same.
Stay Safe and Sane!
