Ever since we arrived here, Danny and I have been sleeping in a different room on the boat every night, trying to figure out which room we prefer. After last night we have decided!! Our room will be the port aft (back left) room. It has a little more closet space and one extra shelf for books etc. The marine life quilt I made Danny for Christmas fits perfectly 🙂
The marina is constantly bustling with activity. Last night our neighbor, Lisa, brought us some eggs, saying she’d over bought at the market. So sweet. I’ll cook us some for breakfast this morning.
I came outside at one point because I heard a little voice saying, ‘I could really use some help here.’ It was a little boy with bright red hair with a fishing net in hand and he was desperately trying to catch some fish. We didn’t catch any but it was a fun anyway.
At one point Danny missed the dock as he was walking, carrying a kayak, and ended up in the water, clothes, cell phone and all. His phone is obviously fried, but luckily he had already ordered another from T Mobil, and it’ll hopefully be waiting for him in CA when we get back. We are switching cell companies. So, if anyone needs to get hold of us for the next few days, Facetime my phone.
While sitting here writing, I just heard Rhett (the red head) yelling at the top of his lungs, ‘DOLPHIN ALERT, DOLPHIN ALERT, EVERYBODY DOLPHIN ALERT.’ I walked the dock to where he was standing, and there was a dolphin lazily swimming not too far off in the distance. Just then a baby spotted eagle ray swam passed, followed by about a 4ft long barracuda. Did I mention that I love this place?!
Yesterday when we were in Bocas, we picked up this handy little hand vacuum. We plugged it in to charge and it works like a dream. Also, I have been searching all over town for a mop so I can swab the decks, and have not been able to find one anywhere. This morning while looking in one of the huge lockers just forward of the mast, neatly tucked away I found a mop! Woohoo!!! Who knew that a little vacuum and a mop could bring one so much joy! The simple pleasures of life. This place will be shining.
