Tortugal Marina

15 May 2008 | Rio Dulce

Well, the awnings are done and up and consequently, the boat is staying much cooler during the day. We love our new Sailrite sewing machine and are excited to be able to make our own covers- we've just got to bring back more fabric from the US since you can't get it here. The varnish is looking good too.

The owner of the marina has a wonderful dog (a Guatemalan breed) who's name is Jefe (means "the boss" in Spanish). He's a cross between dalmation, bulldog and something else but his personality is a riot. He walks with us in the mornings and makes it fun. There's also a cat named Louise who is adorable. She likes to keep us company when we sew. We keep shaking our heads about how special this place is and how much we love it. The swimming is great and the grounds are so beautiful. I love all the airplants everywhere.

More cruisers are coming in day by day and we've been meeting new people who we've heard on the ham radio nets but hadn't met in person yet.

We went out for steak dinner last night with a couple of other boats and it was really good! Trucks filled with cattle are constantly crossing the bridge here so steaks are popular but we just hadn't gotten any yet. Plus, they were pretty bad in Mexico.

Tonight is another movie night on the deck under the trees. And tomorrow we'll knock off some more projects. Life is good here!
