We have begun to fall in
love with Santa Cruz Bay. It is a
bit rolly, but the breeze seems to be constant and the scenery is
revivifying. Furthermore we have
very congenial nautical neighbours.
Dave tested the watermaker
this morning, only to find it is not working- what else did we expect!!? He has now taken it apart and
reassembled it so often he can do it with his eyes shut. However, even with a new membrane, it
still does not function.
We all dinghied over to
Laguna Bay for a relaxing lunch.
It took almost two hours for our orders to arrive! It was such a relaxing time sharing our
sailing experiences. While the
others were waiting for the bills, I swam back to the boat and no, I did not
beat them back!
Lunch at Laguna
Dave needs a real rest at
this point before sailing again, so we have decided to stay here another day or
two. We have already checked out
of Curacao, but we can plead exhaustion and boat repairs if the Coast Guard
checks on us. If they don’t accept
our reasons, we will just set out for Aruba.
