Primarily we had internet needs: We needed to connect with the UK via hook up with Skype for a family celebration, and we also prepared and filed our USA taxes before the April deadline (organized!).
And the chores: laundry, top up diesel, clean boat, (Kyle climbed mast with a hose to finally get rid of the dust from the last time we were here), showers (cold), quick grocery run for some fresh produce, etc..
During this visit to Santa Rosalia, the other boats at the marina were (surprisingly) predominantly multi-hulls, this seemed unexpected and comical to everyone there.
A short return visit to Santa Rosalia - primarily for internet
And the weather was NICE this time too, and we had some spare time to enjoy it too. Kyle finally got to walk on the harbor wall (previously it had been closed all but the first day, due to rough seas).
After so enjoying the ospreys in the northern bay – we surprised ourselves to find a pair living within the marina (on a very sturdy, apparently purpose built perch) – not sure how we missed those last time we were here (or maybe the birds hadn’t arrived by then? – hopefully we are not that poor observers).
To balance all the chores, we ate out more than usual while we were here; we partook of street burritos, fancy restaurants and the Chinese we’d enjoyed on our previous visit (which was generous enough to be sure to have leftovers.
