Arrival in Fortaleza

We arrived here in Fortaleza yesterday, and after trying to reverse onto the pontoon for close on an hour with a side wind, finally warped the boat in. Chris and I were a bit disappointed to find that the Marina Park Hotel didn't quite live up to our hopes. Lola was already anchored outside when we arrived, and Jack called us up on the VHF. Later we helped get Lola into the berth next to us so that they could wash the decks and fill up with water. Jack really showed us how to do it. He dropped anchor short and we took a line with the dinghy over to the pontoon and I winched her in.


Ah, but we got better at berthing, much better
