At Anchor: Definitely Foreign

November 25th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Position 16.7524,-22.9802
Baia da Palmeira, Ilha do Sal

Got the speed right, just light when we dropped the anchor. A good number of other boats here. Peak season. Some off to the Caribbean and an equal number off to Brazil.

We had flying fish all yesterday only one on deck for breakfast though.

Ashore it very different to Europe and everywhere else I have been. Very poor. More unfinished houses than finished. All the white people are tourists! Everybody on the streets rather than in the houses. Friendly.

Off to Santiago tomorrow and then plan to be off across the Atlantic on Friday 28th Nov. Will start the normal e-mails when we start that.

Signing off for now. Thanks for reading!

    If there are flying fish around get a line in the water! Sometimes they are chased by Tuna and marlin so think of the potential meals from that – might need a bigger oven though!
    The trip sounds great so far, here’s wishing you fair winds for the big crossing.
