Good Evening

Sounds of the calm: dogs ashore barking, waves lapping on the beach, the occasional dinghy motoring by.  But mostly there is the lap and swell and sweep of the water against itself, the swish of water against the beach.  The seas are calm.  The sky is powder blue, populated with purple clouds.  Chickpeas brewing in onion and garlic: a scent from below that melds with the salty tang of the air on the tongue.  A gentle breeze that is not as warm as you would like.  It must be 65 degrees.  I am reading on the deck and monitoring the stew below.  I’ve set out game hens, a gift from Bel Canto, Dave and Sandy, who departed today.  We hunted the wily grouper in chilly waters earlier today, hoping for a fish dinner.  A few new boats added themselves to our anchorage today.  We will spend the night together.

Unfortunately, WordPress wants to charge me money to be able to show you videos, and it takes an incredibly long time to upload a video to Youtube (one hour per 15 seconds of video).  So, if you would like to see the video, please go to our Facebook page.

  1. On my wordpress I can just paste in the Youtube URL to the main blog post – it just looks like a link before you publish it – but when you hit publish then it shows up as a Youtube clip within the post.

    I don’t think it costs me any more (well I havent paid anything extra for that anyway) Give it a try! 🙂


    1. Hi Viki,
      Yes, I have done that with wordpress/youtube. But the trouble is that out here, where the link to the wifi is so tenuous, it takes hours and hours to upload to youtube. So that’s why I don’t do it. I find it all very frustrating! Thanks for your comment about the dinghy. I love women who captain their own boats.
