More Fun Things We Did in Tenacatita
15 January 2011 | Tenacatita
We took our dinghy along with Di's Dream's dinghy around the point to the "Aquarium" anchorage for snorkeling in the reefs lying off Punta Hermanos. When we got back to Full:Shell, Eric found that you should never go snorkeling with your cell phone in your pocket. While wringing out his swim trunks, he felt something hard and you guessed it, the phone is now toast. He blames it on a phone call he received just before we left for snorkeling and, out of habit, he put it in his pocket following the call. (Likely excuse!)
That evening we invited Roger and Di to our boat for dinner and Mexican Train. When they were leaving after dark, we all noticed that our dinghy was no longer tied to the back of our boat and was nowhere to be seen. I could not imagine that we could lose two such valuable possessions in one day. Roger took Eric off in Di's Dream's dinghy to look for it with Eric's big spotlight. Low and behold, they found it heading out to sea. Triple knots are now used when tying the dinghy painter to the back of the boat.
