Sunday morning.Ellinor decides that all the free water by the dock has to be taken care of. So we load two madrasses from the forward peek and laundry in the dinghy. Ashore the madrasses are drenched in fresh water with the hope of pressing the salt water away.
We had an accident in Europe when we got salt water through the front hatch and since then we feel that the atmosphere up front is a little damp, we had to do something drastic now. In this climate we have to fight mold and rust, mold and rust, mold and rust.
Today I also got some time to write on my book, wonderful. Feels better to work on a project.
We met a guy as we where working on the laundry, he needed some small parts for plumbing and we traded with him. So the afternoon we visited their house, got a huge stock of bananas, bread fruit, pampelmousse normal and pampelmousse red.
He also caught dorado today so we got a huge filet. Dinner tonight: Dorado, fried bananas and lime. MMMMMMMM!
