This spot is so wonderfully calm and pretty that I think I'll remain another day, despite WindGuru.com showing good sailing weather for the day. I'll get some more work done aboard the boat, go snorkeling a bit and otherwise just do as little as possible in as much time as possible. This is an apt description of “Island Time” and I'll emulate that today.
I spent a lazy day today, swimming around the boat, then using Nevr-Dull to get some of the stainless steel stanchion and deck hardware from state “dull and rusty” back to “shiny”. Then I ran around the anchored boats in the area and took some pictures and went back to the boat and did more of nothing. Ahh, quite relaxing!
