Slip #13

After three great months of cozy marina life, we sailed out of our little home in Puerto Real, Cabo Rojo and waved goodbye to Marina Pescaderia last week.

Slip #13 was so good to us.

We spent our last day at the marina checking off a few final to-do’s, like a final load of laundry, a final water tank top-off, a final shower in a real facility, and a final guava donut from our favorite Puerto Rican bakery in town. …Okay, that last one wasn’t totally necessary I suppose, but definitely still made my day. ;))

We got to enjoy one gorgeous sunset that same evening after playing on the dock with Oliver, who, let me just tell ya, has become quite the fan of evening dock playtime.

There’s this one particular dock line (not being used for anything) that Oliver adopted as his favorite toy. It became this hilarious game of tug-o-war every time we walked past that silly rope. And, of course, we indulged our favorite poodle pants.

Our last and final day at Marina Pescaderia was simple, laid back, and pretty darn perfect. Just the way we like it.

^^#marinalife. PS – that is so not our dinghy parked in front of our boat and basically chafing its way under the concrete dock. We still have zero clue why another cruiser randomly parked their dinghy in our slip (while our boat was there). So random.^^

^^carrying some cheap + easy laundry back from the marina. I will definitely miss the $1 loads of laundry at Marina Pescaderia.^^
