Living With Sea Lions

We are now anchored in San Cristobal, Galapagos and there have to be 200+ sea lions in the harbor - there must be huge fish reserves here to support them. It is a hoot to watch the attempts by catamarans and those with sugar scoop transoms to keep them away. Most of these involve a row of fenders with a variety of lines in a spider web. The little sea lions can fit anywhere and they seem to enjoy sleeping under a couple of fenders (perhaps it feels like mom). Friends with a cat had three of them on the cockpit seats in spite of their best efforts. Best way to get rid of them seems to be to toss a bucket of water on them.

BTW, we sailed here from Bahia, Ecuador in 4 1/2 days. Never saw more than 12 knots and rarely had 10. We did not have to motor much until the last day when the wind totally disappeared. I understand the concept of Doldrums a lot better now. We will likely get another 150 miles of calm stuff when we leave here o the way to Easter Island.

Back to Grenada in early December. Not sure I will remember how to sail. Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
