Boat projects, they always be there, but we are not looking at our list anymore. At least for now. No need to, as an unexpected project will always invites itself to the top of the list (think macerator pump, the pump that so nicely removes our waste from our holding tanks into the ocean). As you can imagine, a not so fun dirty project. With no place to buy extra long screws, Tod made them himself. Tod is working on another unexpected one now: the carburetor of our outboard. I had problems getting it started yesterday, while at the dinghy dock with Tessa in la Cruz. A nice young fellow started it for me, and just after he threw off the dock line, it died again. He must have heard the slight panic in my voice, as he just jumped into the water, pulled our dinghy back to the dock, and re started it. I could kiss his feet, so helpful and sweet! Tessa isn't so into divers, so started to cry during this ordeal, while I kept saying it's OK, he's helping us. I then just zoomed back into the anchorage, somewhat believing that if I kept the throttle up high enough it wouldn't die....Yes, we do have oars in the dinghy, but let's just say it would take a long time to get back into the anchorage.
The tiny pool in marina La Cruz was occupied with 4 cruising families this morning. We had 4 two yr olds, and one 4 yr old splashing in the pool. It was the first time for us to have this many families together with young kids. Most cruising kids we meet are older.
Lots of gorgeous swimming and snorkeling ahead of us in the clear water of the Sea. With
Tessa being comfortable swimming and floating, we are looking forward to do more water activities with her. We hope to see my sister, hubbie and doggie Piper with their boat in the sea. Meet old friends and make new ones. See familiar places and explore new ones.
