Yes, we're still here! We keep trying to head off to a new location but it seems that there is always some reason that causes us to extend our time here for another couple of days.
As many of you know Kathy likes her dresses. She has found different seamstresses around the world to make them. Puerto Galera was no different, though she thinks has been the best yet. Five new dresses, only one of which had to be altered and at a grand total of $35 US. She does provide her own fabric. So that caused us to linger here a bit. We were also told of a dive shop that had wetsuits for sale cheap. It was my turn and I got a 3 mil full suit with zippers at arms and legs for $42 US. Eventually when we return to colder climates I'll get good use from my new wetsuit.
A week ago we were ready to do some final provisioning and Kathy came down with sore throat that turned into bronchitis. She's better but we'll wait a few more days and hope the nice weather window continues.
Meanwhile I get to continue with the day to day boat stuff, little things such as a broken flapper valve on one of the toilets, this caused a gyser to erupt on flushing.( Kathy was the lucky one this time.) Definitely something that needed to be attended to. Rewiring a bilge pump switch. A major repair was fixing a leak in one of the refrigeration systems, got to have my ice cubes. Then today it was repairing one of the ice cube trays.
You can see that we are staying busy, enjoy the photos.
