Boqueron

boqanchoreage

Boqueron , Puerto Rico    a nice anchorage close to the dingy dock and a wonderful village .

It took 3 full days to motorsail from Luperon , DR to Boqueron, PR.  Nice to see a cycling club enjoying the area.

boqbakery

All islands seem to have a great bakery, and Boqueron was not the exception.  Good baked goods and hot sandwiches from this family run business kept the customers coming.

Buddy Jed, a fellow cruiser who has “Gypsy” in Luperon, stepped up and helped me motorsail to PR.  The hyrdrallic ram did act up again, forcing me to repressurize and add fluid to it constantly.  At least we did not have to use the emergency pipe tiller.  Big shouts of thanks to my friend.

boqseafood

Seafood is abundant in the islands, and this street vendor had a nice fresh selection.

boqfriendlybar   So often out cruising, we were met by helpful locals.  This bartender got me the number to clear in on her own cell phone.  So nice to meet friendly, helpful folks.

After a few days, we bid Boqueron farewell, anxious to get to Salinas, my new island home in Puerto Rico.  The night winds were light, a full moon, and a calm sea was a pleasant respite from the strong winds and current on the nose of the past few days and nights.  Salinas here we come.
