Buddy Dive Resort is very reasonable and Turtle Reef is my favorite all time dive site in the world.

Good luck.

Headed out & underway again

This is great news that Richard is on the move again. Looks like he & Dauntless are headed in a generally western bound direction running approximately parallel with the south American north coast going toward the Panama Canal direction.

He is currently in the "ABC Islands" region which is also known as the " Netherlands Antilles" area of the southern Caribbean sea. Just north of Venezuela.

Of course we are all wishing him a safe & fair weather passage to his next destination in his journey.

Thanks.

He is in the inland harbour of curacao near the old town. You need to go through the inlet and after crossing their swing bridge you access all the protected water. That's there that ther have all their commercial terminals.

We have people to see and places to go

First time here with computer in a while.
Wi-fi is pretty much not.

Thanks Lou for posting this and Roger for keeping me informed aobut the InReach hijinks.

Just put a post on blog, had the EASIEST 3 -Day Passage Ever
Sure the winds were still 20 gusting to 30, but the waves stayed below 12 to 15'

And it was smooth sailing.

On another note, in spite of all the rolling a large follwoing sea produces, I have stopped taking my prevent sea sickness medicine and I was not sea sick at all for the first time in a long time without the pills or patch.
More to follow as I investigate further.

Leaving Curacao tomorrow.

We have people to see and places to go.

Richard: When you go through the San Blas (Kuna Yala) look up Scott and Caroline on the KK42 Sealife. https://share.delorme.com/SeaLife.

https://caribbeansealife.com/

It would probably be the first time two KK42s would be there or any two Krogens for that matter.
