|Guayas Carnaval is an amazing celebration with parades and music every day.|
Instead of giving away two of those bunches of onions to our boater friends at the dock, Connie is putting lots of onions in everything we eat. Onions in the eggs, onions in the soup, onions in the salad. But I'm getting off track here. The big item tonight is that I overcooked the quinoa. It is mush. And, as it was pointed out to me, it cost $3 a pound when we bought it in that fancy Phoenix Arizona store. We put some butter on top and just shoveled it in, as bland as bland can be.
We also had to wait on our hatch cover to be straightened. You see, it had been leaking ever since I jibed the boat and forgot to close the hatch. The boom vang hooked onto the open hatch and ripped it off its hinges. In Barra de Navidad I had the Jon-Co guy fix it but he fixed it crooked so that every time it rained it leaked like a sieve. This time we took it to Luis Hernandez, a wonderful man with a machine shop here in Guaymas. He did a bang up job and we got it from him today and installed it using contact cement for the gasket, silicon adhesive for the glass, and construction adhesive for the deck to frame joint. Lots of smelly glue type things.

Now it is raining but that's OK because the Carnaval concert stage is quiet for once. Maybe we can sleep without earplugs tonight. Then, with any luck, we'll pick up some fresh produce in the morning, pay the slip fee and sail away to the south.
We enjoyed the festivities here in Guaymas. It's been a blast. We saw a great parade yesterday with lots and lots of colorful dancers, beautiful floats, and confetti everywhere. Each night there are fireworks and tonight the fireworks show was spectacular.
The theme was: Hooray for Traveler. She can finally get the heck out of here!
|Everyone is happy that Traveler is finally heading south!|
