Headed North the next morning to Puerto Escondido. Looking forward to being in a port with internet and a store. It is a nice place to stop and relax. When we arrived, we took a mooring ball. This is a private marina and very expensive. The mooring ball was a buck a foot per night. We launched the dinghy, took all of the paperwork to the office and got checked in. They forced us to walk through the bar to get to the office so we had to stop and have a beer after the business was done. Wow! Civilization.
All the talk at the bar was about the wind. I was a bit confused about that on a beautiful calm day so when I returned, I looked at the weather model and understood the concern. There was going to be a good blow coming through.
It did blow. 40 Knot winds for three days. We were very happy to be connected to a mooring ball. The ball itself spent most of the time under water as Coda pulled hard on the rode.
We hunkered down at the bar and waited it out.
In the meantime, there was time to provision some food, relax and get caught up on things. The internet was pretty good.
We were very anxious to get moving after all of that wind, so as soon as it subsided, we were off.
