Where Next?

Alongside Persimmon, Caleta Saurez
Weather: sunny cool

Last night the Caleta was invaded by seven Chilean fishing vessels who have come in to avoid some bad weather brewing outside. We are all rafted up together side by side with Sylph outboard on the shoreward end, lines criss-cross this way and that lashing us all together. One of the boats we had met before when we first got here and they were as friendly as ever, providing us with several cod which one of Ian’s crew promptly turned into a delicious baked lunch. Unfortunately for Bob Cat the meal was so well enjoyed that there were no leftovers.

Otherwise I have used the day to progress a few small jobs. At this stage the wind is due to go into the southwest on Saturday, so tomorrow I shall continue making sure we are ready to sail.

All is well.

Bob Cat:

This is starting to become very unfunny. I can smell fish, lots of them, but can I get a tiny morsel? Well, to be honest, I did get a can of tuna last night while visiting next door, but apart from that. At least our abode has remained stable for the last few days. One never know what is gong to happen next around here so I had best make the most of it ….. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
