Michael and Susan left Florida in 2007 aboard their Westsail 43 INFINI to fullfill a dream of full time cruising.
We've enjoyed our stay here in Salinas. We've walked to the Selectos market and downtown, stopping at the Banco Popular ATM. Bam, instant cash, unlike many of the places we've been this last year (Trinidad). We've met some lovely folks; Bruce and Connie of sv Ventanas, and ate a BBQ dinner at the Snack Bar at the marina with them Fri night. After, we had a drink at Sal Pa'Dentro, and Anna hung the flag we had given her in a great spot in front of the bar. If you see a pink flamingo flag with drinks about to be served, look a wee bit harder and you'll see "Infini," and our names on the flag. We were told our anchor chain would be quite fouled and that we would be chipping growth off it after 4 days. Not so; we pulled our chain to stage a bit further away from the main anchorage and it was all good. The manatees around here are awesome, and very inquisitive. My guess is that they're used to being fed. This morning, we motored (no wind) to Isla Caja de Muertos (Coffin Island), and plan to walk to the lighthouse tomorrow.
