Blue courtyard. Isla Providencia, Colombia

Because I like to have a photo at the top of the page and the previous story didn’t have any photos to go along, here’s something from the Isla Providencia archives.

I don’t know what this building was originally intended for, but it had weeds growing on top of the walls and kids playing soccer inside.

Katydid. Isla Providencia, Colombia

Isla Providencia, Colombia

This guy rode over on Cameron’s kayak just before we hauled anchor to depart. He stayed with us as long as we were in the lee of the island. After that… I don’t know as we were to busy holding on to pay attention to him. There was also a good katydid picture on Jill’s blog a couple of days ago.

Tree. Isla Providencia, Colombia

[Isla Providencia, Colombia]

We arrived at Mansfield Cut this afternoon around 2 only to find it closed out by surf. I knew it was a small channel but it hadn’t occurred to me and I’m glad we arrived in the day when we could see the situation clearly. Cheyenne was not happy. Our choices were; head back south 30 miles to Port Isabel or go on 75 miles to Port Aransas. A strong current is running North along the coast so our decision was to head North down current, down wind, to Port Aransas. We had a thunderstorm last night that was really something. It only hammered on us for an hour and a half but we both think it was the worst storm we’ve seen on the TimeMachine. Luckily, I was on watch and the sails were already down. I desperately wanted some sail to help control the boat, but the hell if I was going to go up on the fore deck and try hank on the storm jib. It was all I could do to hang on while being bludgeoned by the awning as it tore itself to streamers. Cheyenne was not happy. I’ll let her tell the full story later.
