To Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz
The skipper about is captains chores
We left Floreana this morning at eleven, a very uneventful motor sail of thirty three miles to Santa Cruz. Flat calm water, a few birds, no fishing success, Mmmm.
Soon we were wiggling through the anchored vessels.
We passed a freighter that looks as if she is destined for the One Carful Owner category in the not too distant future and Islander, the National Geographic boat we last saw in San Cristobal, this time with a couple of ‘soundos’ – funnily enough these are the only two sea lions we have seen – so far.
Always a little daunting to appear on the map as if we have anchored on dry land. Seeing all the boats in the anchorage have stern anchors out, so did we.
Settled, we see Scott-Free and beyond her Sheer Tenacity to our left. To our right a potential for internet – must put that on the list for tomorrow.
Many tour boats behind to our left – hopefully we will get the chance to go on a couple of islands we cannot sail too.
As the sun sets behind us its time for me to try and get revenge for the backgammon beating I got en route. Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr NO.
ALL IN ALL LOOKING FORWARD TO EXPLORING
