Back to Barra

Dave, sunny, hot and humid!
Back to Barra on 10/25/14 with friend Pat Mead to put Pacifico back together for the season. Pancho, the boat worker that has taken care of Pacifico met us at the Manzanillo airport in his air conditioned VW for the 25 minute ride to Barra. We found that Pacifico had weathered the summer heat and rains well, dry inside and Pancho had taken great care of her for me. It has been hot, high 80’s to low 90’s with humidity, a lot of days the heat index is over 100, so the going has been slow and sweat rolls off like being in a shower. Fortunately the pool and pool bar are only a short walk so there is relief at the end of the day. Pat and I were getting up early to walk about an hour over the hill to the beach, but we found that we were getting started so late on the work that it was too hot to get much done. A few days off from the walking and an early start on projects progressed the work nicely. It took me over three weeks to put the boat into the storage mode by myself and a little less than two weeks for both of us to get it back together. I can’t thank Pat enough for his help and perseverance in this heat. We took one day off for a bus trip to Manzanillo's “Club Social” and some shopping and another day hiding from heavy rain. Of course there's been some well deserved time off for local R & R pool side, but that’s mostly later in the afternoon. Most of us here have met in the evenings at the hotels “lobby bar” for the World Series and a few football games. About the only other “cruisers” who were here were those also returning to their boat and mostly to get ready to head south, wanting an early jump on the Central America transit to Panama. Dave and Betty Ann of s/v Confidence, Barry from s/v Sea Swift, Don of s/v Antara and a few others, but those are the ones we got to know the most. All but Barry have departed now so the place is all but deserted.
This is Pat at about sun up working on deck taking the summer shade tarps down. We kept the best of three for rain, and that was a good thing! You can see the humidity in the air here. Did I comment on the mosquitoes?
