Not exactly a breeze

Happy Sunday from windy Las Salinas, Dominican Republic!

After an early start (anchor up at 5 am) we arrived at Las Salinas at 3 in the afternoon. I'm not going to tell you how far it is, because our speed record on this one was bad. (Remember again that thing about going east in the Caribbean? Not so much fun.) We motored two thirds of it and sailed the last bit, although we never did find the shelter from the land we were looking for, so it was another close haul.

Las Salinas seems to be pretty much a hotel resort and some holiday homes, so we are feeling good about the provisioning and laundry we did in Barahona. More exploring to confirm first impressions tomorrow.

Anyone's guess as to how long we'll be here. Once we know, I will let you know.

The photo shows our neighbour in Barahona. He just fit in the anchorage and we had to move for him to go in or out.

If you'd like to follow along,we are at: N18 12.883  W70 32.569
