After a nice calm evening in Santiago Bay we pulled the anchor at first light and motored to Bahia De Navidad, the location of the town of Melaque. It ended up being a bit of a rough ride. So rough that Kevin got sea sick with only a few miles to go before reaching Melaque. This is the first time he has been sea sick this entire tip. Our cat was also a little sick, but just barely. So, I (Steve) am now the only one that hasn't been sea sick on our 6 months of travel.
We anchored in front of the beautiful sand beach of Melaque and the kids started home school. A few hours later our friends on sv Zoe B arrived. They told us they had caught 3 large yellow fin tuna on their trip up from Carrizal. they asked if we like to help them eat some of it for dinner. How could we refuse that offer?

Melaque is a very cute town with some excellent little stores for provisioning.
