This sailing life at times feels like a string of one night stands, checking in, falling head over heels, tempted to settle down but knowing that we have to move on. Even so, when we weighed anchor at 4.30am from Isabela heading to Santa Cruz, I wasn't ready to leave. We had been given such a warm welcome by Steven, Javier's rep on the island, Sthalin and Thalia, José - de verdad, linda Isla, linda gente! - and time went all too quickly. So instead of going back to sleep after my watch I made myself a cup of coffee and said goodbye, watching the sun rise. Adiós beautiful Isabela!
