Got up, went to the boat. Helped put everything back together. Met Greg, part of the crew who travels between here and San Francisco. He has a Mexican girlfriend here and a job in San Fran, so that's how it goes. Went to lunch at Juanita's (we ate pork... naughty!) and then back to Colin's to pack up our belongings. We moved into our own apt in the afternoon! It's the one mentioned previously, above the restaurant downtown. The owners have the tiniest chihuahua named Micky. He's the smallest dog we've ever seen! They also have a big parrot, 2 cats, and 2 other chihuahuas (Rosie and Ricky) who had babies at 2am. 2 girls and a boy and they are so little, they look like baby mice. Pretty cute.

We unpacked and sat in the AC for awhile. Back to the boat at 5pm. Hung out for awhile, helped fix some lines that were hooked up backwards. Went grocery shopping at Mega and then home to our tiny abode. Sleeping was difficult because of the heat.

Our first sail on the Patricia Belle!!!!!!!!!  Well, not until after Brad called me saying he ran his truck's tank dry.  We went to the closest gas station and filled up a gallon water jug with some gas and took to him.  Yep a water jug (see pic).  The gas attendant didn't even question it.  We then got to the boat and went out at 1pm. Scott jumped right in and helped put up the sails. We sailed to the islands, the wind was great, and stopped to do a little swim in the ocean.

Scott bought a margarita in a can (there's also rum&coke in a can) which was interesting.  We both burnt our retinas being out on the water for that long and Scott's farmer's tan just keeps getting better and better.  We came home after the sail, showered and lounged til we decided to go join the crew at the Cebolla Morada for some drinks.  Leif's car is giving us more problems now than we signed up for.  It started steaming by the time we made it from the centro to the Purple Onion, so we may just park it til Leif gets back and leave it at that.  It sure has been fun driving with no rules though.  Turn signal, red lights, pedestrians, what are those again???
