As usual, I find it very difficult to post via phone, so now I’m several days behind. Cell service and blog posting software are a fairly sensitive combination.
We anchored in this very popular anchorage, but we were the only boat remaining overnight from the 20-plus boats that were here earlier in the day. All of those day trippers were here to take advantage of the sandy beach, easy boat beaching, protected water, and fairly deep anchoring with good holding. This a great place for swimming and relaxing by the water.
I took the opportunity that fairly clear water provided and dove on the prop for barnacle scraping. There were many tiny barnacles, but now they’re gone. I also brushed soft growth from the bottom, as it had since early April when the bottom was clean. This has given me back at least a half knot under sail, and more under power.
We also enjoyed a fairly dramatic sunset, but my phone isn’t up to the task of faithfully recording it. I’ll post a few different photos from our “real” cameras when we get home.
