Around the point to Tambor
Once again -- an easy 9:30 departure after lattes. Tambor was to be a longer day -- 50nm around Cabo Blanco and in towards the Nicoya Inlet. I was happy that the weather was holding as we passed the point. We now would have a bit more protection from the ocean swells.
We rounded Capo Blanco (cape white) with no problems. another perfect day for cruising. It was beautiful.
At 4:30 PM we pulled into Tambor. It was a huge harbor with a decent city in it. Lots of fishing activity and a beach with restaurants. We decided to go exploring the next morning and just settled in for a drink.
It was a beautiful evening with the lights of the city and we were treated to a stunning lightning show over the hills above the bay.
The next morning we launched the dinghy after coffee and we toured the bay. We tried to find a place to tie up the dinghy so we could go ashore and have a nice breakfast but we did not find an accommodating place. I dropped Barb and Stacy at the beach and they walked the town a bit before I picked them up and took them back to the boat.
We were just a couple of hours from being in the Nicoya inlet so we set our sights on Cedros Island. It will be nice to be in protected waters with good things to explore.
