First order of business after nearly a month…the laundry bags are full and we are off to discover where we can get all our chores done. The good news is Wind Shepherds friends, Dick and Jane are more than happy to direct us and so we are in very good hands. Ginny & John rented a car so we were able to drop our 6 loads of laundry at the Laundromat where after you start the wash they will dry and fold it for the whopping sum of $4.25. A good deal for us, and means we do not have to stay and take the time to do it. After finding a great roadside stand in Playa Salinas that had wonderful Empanadas which we enjoyed for lunch, we drove thru the mountains to town about 40 minutes away to explore the shopping as we have lots of provisioning to do and managed to find the Kmart, battery store, Walmart, CVS, etc. We’ll be coming back here on Monday for our major shopping, but in the meantime, we tried to get a few things done today. After fighting the traffic on a Friday afternoon, we were on our way back to Salinas, where we had made arrangements to have the BBQ dinner at the harbor. $7.95 will by you a combo dinner, ribs, chicken and sausage off the grill. We had no idea how great it was until we couldn’t eat it all and had to wrap it up to take home. We also got to meet several other cruisers here and ended us at a community table with Americans, Puerto Ricans, Canadians, British and Germans. It’s pretty remarkable how we can all converse and share…a regular UN.
