Nothing is so classy as shaking up martinis in a nalgene water bottle. Which is to say we are really classy because that’s what we were doing last night. We were celebrating having internet and telephone service again. Apparently the equipment, as in the towers, are not storm proof! We have had some pretty intense electrical storms, heavy rains, typical stuff for the tropics, but Claro wireless towers couldn’t handle it and neither could the internet service provider’s! Combine this with the occasional power outage and it felt like we were getting back to the old days when any of these luxuries would have been just that. Of course in the absence of some luxuries, one can suffice with others, martinis shaken in a nalgene bottle among them.
Along with the tropical weather has some some funky morning sickness. The offshore flow just can’t get enough momentum to clean up the bump created by the afternoon off shores. This is fine for the beach breaks, so we’ve been hunting around Salinas Grande getting some pretty decent waves. Very excited to have our water housing getting sent back…we can’t get photos at Salinas Grande because we access it by boat. With the water housing back we should be able to get some good shots there and other places.
Nothing too amazing in the forecast. A lot of if’s and maybes on the horizon, but we’ll have to wait and see how they pan out.
