When I left you last, I believed I wouldn’t have time to write, well, here I am. Having docked in the port of Limon, (Puerto Limon) and completed most of my tasks for the morning, some time to relax and write.
5 a.m. in the morning and a call from the Bridge, “1-hour’s notice to Red manning”. Suitably invigorated with an espresso coffee, I went to the Bridge, in the early morning light, the twinkling lights of Limon were visible ahead, the coastal mountains of Costa Rica behind. The compulsory pilot boarded when we were almost in the harbour, much to our liking, as you know by now we far prefer to keep the conn if possible. An approach to the long pier on which we were to dock; a ‘wheelie’ through 180° and astern towards the dock.
K1 is ashore, kayaking no less (and no doubt, there will be stop in the market, too close for comfort, in the terminal). A quick jaunt ashore for me though, just to take some photos.
