Chilean Sea Bass -- 3/24/2015

So we are sitting around at Happy Hour with Joe and Pearl, and Joe says, "Let's go to Port A and spend the night on the boat."

"Sounds like a good idea.  When?"

"Tomorrow.  We could leave bright and early, so we have time to enjoy the day there."

I feel my panic button.  What time is bright and early?  

"9A.  You don't need to pack, as everything you need is on the boat."

Calming down, I agree I can be ready at that hour.

We sleep well and text them the next morning at 8 that we are waiting by our gate with a steaming cup of coffee for them to pick us up.

It is a pleasant drive to Port A and we experience a feeling of Peace as we climb aboard the Bluewater On Your Mark.  Soon we are lounging on the mid deck overlooking the turquoise water of the bay, watching boats, planes and people.  Pearl and I worry about a construction worker near the marina digging with a shovel and not wearing gloves.  He will be sorry.

How do you spell r-e-l-a-x-e-d?  So relaxed the only photos of this day are in my memory.

Dinner is at La Playa Mexican Grill with tasty entrees of Chilean Sea Bass, and of course, a nice bottle of wine.  We sleep well.

Morning brings a sunny start to the day and we are greeted with laptops and coffee.

During our morning walks, we leave our boat cards on the Nancy G, and wish Skip and Nancy could have been here with us.

On Your Mark

All too soon it is time to return to Port Isabel -- I forget why --

Find the dock cart filled with luggage and electronic devices heading for the parking lot....

As we drive home, someone comments about how much we enjoyed the perfectly grilled Chilean sea bass dinner from last night.
