Happy New Year from Barra de Navidad
0900, 01 January 2012, at anchor, Barra de Navidad
Just a short entry to wish everyone a wonderful New Year and a happy and prosperous 2012.
We had a wonderful evening aboard Optical Illusion and welcomed in the New Year with them and Steve and Linda from Warren Peace. At midnight we broke open a bottle of Italian sparkling red wine and watched the fireworks from the big hotel and from Barra. There were a number of boats that fired off outdated flares, probably the most effective and cost saving method of getting rid of them The other side-benefit is to actually experience firing one off in a non-emergency situation.
We woke up this morning to very loud “techno music” from the island in the bay, an island where the only noise we have ever heard was dogs barking.
Another few days and we’ll be leaving this idyllic spot for Manzanillo Bay.
All the best from the crew of GOSLING!!
