Good Bye to Our Friends

There is very little left of our food stores at this time. We have half a head of cabbage, a green pepper, raw oats, 4 Cliff bars and some oranges.  Despite our shortage, Alex was able to whip up bacon and Bisquick pancakes.

We spent the morning diving off Penelope into a clear, green ocean, scampering up the swim ladder into the cockpit and rinsing with the awesome fresh water wash down hose Peter installed in the cockpit while in Santa Barbara.


Alex and Krista were organizing their things and packing their bags to go home. Peter, the Captain, signed their American Sailing Association (ASA) log books to certify 800 miles of open ocean sailing.

It’s a sad day at the Gierga’s. Our friends, Alex and Krista, are leaving.


We dingied to the dinghy dock and waited while Alex retrieved the marlin/tuna/mahi mahi they’d had frozen for the trip home.  We walked with them to the lobby of the Windham Hotel where the shuttle would take them to the airport.  I cried when we said good-bye.  Hasta Luego, Amigos.
