This morning we made the final run to Mercado Abasto and loaded up with fresh fruits and vegetables. The picture above is of the papaya shop. The papayas on the upper shelves are bigger than a five gallon jerry can. Our best deal was fifty pounds of oranges for five dollars. Because of all this food, extra water and diesel Vixen is showing just a sliver of bottom paint at the waterline. We'll have one more stop tomorrow at Isla Contadora for a swim and then shove off for Hawaii. On these long voyages I spend at least a few minutes thinking about every person that I've ever known so be assured well be thinking of you. Below is Soli's homemade Monopoly board to keep us occupied during the passage.
Bruce Halabisky is a wooden boat builder and sailor. He and Tiffany Loney are the owners of Vixen.
