Current Location: Caya Norte Anchorage, North of Culebra Island, Puerto Rico
Miles Traveled: 22
Weather: Mostly sunny, breezy (5-10), low-80s
Highlights: Checked on our water pump status first thing this morning, and was informed of new eta of Friday, and thanks for our patience. Replied that our patience had run dry, cancel the order, and we'll have Jennifer send the pump that was delivered to her last week over to St. Thomas. We've got a perfect weather window to motor east to the USVIs, then sail down to St. Croix later in the week, so didn't want to wait any longer. Raised anchor at 9:30, motored over to the west side of Culebra, dropped anchor just outside the ferry dock, then took the dinghy into town to drop off trash and pick up some groceries. Finished those chores around 1:30, then raised anchor and motored around to Bahia de Marejada for some snorkeling. Terry had been snorkeling here a few weeks ago without Amy (her ears were bothering her), and found it really good, so wanted to check it out again. Water was too stirred up by the NE swells this time, so a bit of a disappointment, but still better than average. Finished snorkeling around 4, raised anchor, and motored over to Culebrita. We were going to anchor in the bay, but with the NE swells, thought we would try the south shore of Caya Norte, which turned out to be a good choice. A sloop came over from the bay and dropped anchor next to us shortly after we got settled. Chatted with them for a bit - they informed us that they were rolling like crazy last night in the bay, and got almost no sleep. This anchorage provides a bit more protection from the NE. We both laid out on the trampoline before bed tonight - stars were amazingly bright.
