Gap Winds Are Not Fun

We've been moving along -- four anchorages in three days. Well, ok, one was a marina where we stopped for fuel and water. But we?¢â??¬â??¢ve been trying to move fast to beat the gap winds which as I speak are blowing about 25 knots and making some chop in the bay?¢â??¬¦so that?¢â??¬â??¢s not working out too well. We are just at the start of the season where they start blowing and they have all been 30 knots or less so far.

We went from Potrero to Guacamaya to Marina Papagayo to Playa Mata de Cana where we anchored yesterday. Now today we are in Playa del Coco. We are going to clear out of the country tomorrow and wait for a weather window for going around Cabo Santa Elena. Last time we went around Cabo "Satan" Elena the highest winds I?¢â??¬â??¢ve ever experienced and damaged two sails. We have a little more time to wait for better weather than we did last time. It was a nightmare?¢â??¬¦we don?¢â??¬â??¢t want a repeat this time.

Last time we were in Tamarindo I really wanted a sunset photo of the sun going down over Isla Capitan. I don't know why, but I really really wanted the photo. Now that I have it, I know why. It's fantastic! Or as Sherrell put it, "Uhng, just another sunset photo, big deal."
