Dodging a Bullet

12 December 2017 | Barra de Navidad, Mexico
George Stonecliffe
It seems that the honey bees have vacated Julia Max. In the morning there was one around the mizzen boom which received a Raid spray. There were no bees visible flying around the mast head or around the boat. At the morning radio net, when we talked about our encounter, Adagio mentioned they had a hundred bees on their boat deck in various stages of dying. One of our readers mentioned that the swarm was waiting for a new hive location to be found, and that they wouldn't have stayed on our boat. But that one is a tough call. We love honey bees in our backyard..., but not on the boat. So we moved four hours away to Barra de Navidad where we will be in the Marina near a pool! 1. Charging batteries 2. Provisioning 3. Laundering 4. Watering: drinkable water, and getting our watermaker running 5. Removing trash 6. Birding 7. Enjoying the town of Barra: French Bakery, masseuse, Internet 8. Maybe even a little varnishing....
