Just catching up:
Every day, those that wanted to would swim to shore from one of the boats (.3 miles or so). Usually the women wanted to, and the men would bring the dingys to shore for the trip home and also guard the women during their swim from crocodiles, jelly fish, randy dolphins, and errant panga drivers. Sometimes the guarding was even useful. Then we’d walk on the beach to see if any more turtles hatched. Non-walkers would play bocchi-ball.
We had a very pleasant 26 hour, 130 mile trip north to Banderas from Tenecatita, but during the afternoon we had 15-20 knots on the nose and the spray dried on the dodger windows. Dried salt spray is difficult to see through, so at sunset I went forward to clean. Warm water and a soft squeegee. Actually, caring for the clear vinyl dodger windows is a tough job. They’re easy to scratch.
