Santa Rosalia

30 May 2011 | Marina Fonatur, Santa Rosalia
Connie, windy and cool
As I'm writing this blog, sitting in our boat in Santa Rosalia, there's a cold north wind howling outside at 25-30 knots. What a change from 3 days ago when we arrived. It has been very hot, humid, and uncomfortable, around 90 degrees and 80% humidity, until today when the wind blew. It only got to 71 degrees in our boat today. The marina has a small swimming pool where we cooled off on those uncomfortably hot days. It was a great way to spend the hottest part of the afternoon, floating in the pool on the second story deck overlooking the dock and boats. On Saturday there was a wedding reception here at the marina. It was fun watching the preparations-one woman tied bows around 340 chairs!! I bet her hands were tired after that! It got started late as it's too hot to do things during the daytime here. People were just arriving after 9:00 p.m. while the bride and groom were getting their pictures taken. Around 10:00 they were eating dinner, then after that there was music and dancing until 4:00 in the morning!! We've enjoyed exploring this old mining town and will see more of it while we stay here for another week. The mines have been closed down for over 10 years, but a Canadian mining Co. has bought the mine and put billions of dollars into getting the mines running again. I'll be catching up on our blogs now because for the last 2 weeks we stayed in rural anchorages with no internet connection.
