blue footed boobies
Our journey to
Not much wind so had to motor a lot.
Saw a pod of pilot whales near to La Libertad and had trouble negotiating past fishing vessels who had lit their nets with floating “candles” that were barely visible. On closer inspection they were little wicks fed by smelly kerosene.
Just by La Libertad is an Oil terminal and so the water in the harbour is covered in sticky slick. Ropes and dinghy a bit messy to say the least.
Compensation in the form of lovely blue-footed boobies settling on the buoy just outside.
Had an excellent meal in Guyaquil yacht club. We were welcomed warmly and given a free club burgee.
