9 Mar 2011 - San Miguel, Tenerife - Confined to Quarters!
San Miguel De Abona, Spain
Today we had to re-supply with food and fuel here in Puerto Rico de La Gran Canaria.
I was starting to sneeze and my nose started running. I had to go to the Farmacia to get some medicine. By the time I found it, I was feeling miserable.
I found something that looked like Theraflu. I took it immediately to the bar next door and paid 1 Euro for bottle of water and drank it down.
I went back to the boat coughing and sneezing and hacking. No one wanted to come near me and Dennis, the skipper du jour said "Go to bed man! Yer a hazard to the crew!". So I was confined to quarters for the whole day.
We at least had good wind today so we made good time going from Puerto Rico to San Miguel de Tenerife, about 60 miles.
Dennis and I ate on the boat and crashed. I was so sound asleep, I didn't even hear when the Ruskies came back.
