Esperanza, Vieques

27 March 2012
Tuesday, March 27, 12

Moving again today, about a mile north to the anchorage outside of the town of Esperanza. After making sure we are well-hooked, we drop the dingy and go exploring. We met some people aboard another boat who gave a waypoint to John and Ginny for a good western anchorage. This we intend to anchor at tomorrow and use as a jumping off spot on Thursday to head for Salinas.

We head for the dingy dock to town and cruise right over a spotted eagle ray in clear water. Ashore we find a charming main street filled with shops, restaurants, and one block back guest houses and private homes. The main street has a bricked walkway that looks out over the sea and as we gaze out we see the eagle ray jumping out of the water...yippee. I still don't know why they do it...but we enjoy watching just the same. We discover the nearest comida, or grocery store, the stadium for baseball which was lit up so brightly last night, and an elementary school with kids tearing around on the playground....some things are universal.

After a nice lunch with Wind Shepherd we picked up few things at the grocery then headed back to the boat for a swim. We swam out to the small island we are sheltered behind, where we have seen a dive buoy, and along the way check to make sure our anchor is well dug in. Amongst a sea of grass we spot a lone starfish, a southern stingray and our friend the eagle ray winging along.
