For the most part, “some” includes us. The daily high has begun to hit 40 C (104 F) and is rising over the next couple of days. There’s a point every afternoon as the sweat soaks through our minimal clothing, our computers have long since over-heated, and all our water is a non-refreshing lukewarm when we curse the heat. But overall, it’s kind of fun.
We are on the hook in front of La Paz Centro and it’s a good place to bear it. There’s a constant breeze that blows through the anchorage (not to mention the cool coromuel winds that can bluster through at night – we’ve had 2 strong ones (20 knots) in the past 4 nights!).
Our solar panels are pumping out the power and we’ll begin the watermaker installation tomorrow. Unfortunately I only filled 2 out of 3 water tanks when we left the marina (woops, an air pocket made me think the third one was full) so this project has jumped to the top of the list. Soon we’ll be totally self-sufficient. For now, no fresh water showers allowed.
Too hot to write. Time for another swim.
