April showers

(April 11 - posted by Mike)

Yesterday was chore day on Renova with the Captain and crew gathering
supplies, fuel, water and making preparations so we would be ready to sail
north in case we get some favorable weather. (ok, maybe a little more
captain and a little less crew- thanks john!) We seem to be stuck between 2
low pressure systems which has been disturbing the trade winds. And with the
low pressure comes rain.

Last night was another cruiser dinner night at a local restaurant. Seems
funny to come all this way for taco night!

We had had sun for most of the day. As we finished our meals, it started to
rain - then pour! We waited inside for the rain to lighten, which never
came. In fact, it started to rain harder. We ran for the dingy which had
collected a good supply of rain water.

Back on the boat and soaking wet. We hunkered down and kicked ourselves for
paying for freshwater! We put out some buckets and went to bed listening to
the rain and watching lightening across the lagoon.

We awoke today to grey skies and more rain. Should be a good day for
Internet and some shopping. After all we don't seem to be going anywhere

But I have to say at least it's a warm rain!! Not bad at all as far as
weather goes!

Chat soon!
