Culebra and Isleta
10 April 2014
DAY 103 – April 9th, 2014 – Culebra – Spanish Virgin Islands
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOUG
This morning the Disney ship came in again, and poor Dumbo is still painting the stern, bless him….We were off early to pick up a few items, most of all Rum and Vodka, pulled up the anchor by noon, gotta love heading downwind, but the trip still was bucking and rolling up to 20o either way across to Culebra. Anchored by 14.30 and got out some munchies and enjoyed the remainder of the afternoon. Took Doug ashore to the Dinghy Dock for Ribs for his birthday.
DAY 104 – April 10th, 2014 – Isleta – Puerto Rico
OK this trip is over, 104 days and now time to go home. Head out at 08.00 wind of course is still behind us and strong enough that we are glad we are not heading up wind. Thought it nice not to motor sail today, but really not enough wind to push us forward with the wind and current it would have taken a few hours more so after enjoying the peace for an hour and only moving at about 2 knots an hour we turned on the motor and motor sailed at a respectable 5 – 6 knots. We bucked and rolled back to Isleta, pleasant ride, able to read and only saw one boat out there. Got home just after Noon and spent the rest of the day chatting with friends and Michael, had dinner on board and headed up to the apartment for a good night’s sleep. Not sure yet when Moma is being taken out of the water, a few things needing done before that sad day.
