Anchored in Salinas, and the bay eats our camera phone!

We leave Caleta de Cabullones/ Ponce at 8am. Now we are on a heading to Salinas. We pass Isla Caja de Muertos in english it means coffin of the dead ( creepy) on our port side on a nice starboard tack. Reef in the jib and then the main. The wind is gusting and very strong today to add to the eerie creepy name of the island we are passing. 18kts of SE trade winds. We are averaging about 5 kts. Waves are about 7 ft. Just as we are finishing up breakfast, Ryan is having a hard time swallowing his food. He gets up and leans over… and just then a wave heels us over and I almost lose him overboard! I caught his foot. It happened so fast. It freaked me out. Sorry mom if you reading this, we wear our harness religiously now….  Ill be damned if these creepy names get the best of us in Puerto Rico, I will not lose my husband. I was ready to rescue him. I gotcha baby.

Its 11:20 the hubby is sleeping and we have a couple of more hours till we reach Salinas. Wind is slowing down and then gusting. Overcast up above. Beau is knocked out. I read…

4:40pm We are anchored in Salinas. Lots of boats here.  We go in for a swim and then set out to explore the anchorage. We have dinner at this wonderful little restaurant at the marina. In the middle of the patio is a big tree where its limbs snake through the deck of the restaurant. Tired, the stores are a ways in town so instead after we eat and head back to the boat for rest. ZZzzzzz great day! We are in Salinas!

We stay here for a few days getting supplies…

Day before we leave, we lose our camera phone in the muggy waters, Bummer. This is why we have no pics of southern Puerto Rico…no pics. :(
