Last anchorage

With less than a month before our scheduled departure, we return to the La Cruz anchorage.  Twenty or so vessels share the anchorage, compared with the seventy counted at high season.  Eric works on canvas projects to shield equipment from summer sun.  Eulalie compiles a detailed down-rigging list with all the tasks we need to complete before we depart.  Porpoises glide among the anchored boats as if summoning us to play one more time before turning to the list.  In the afternoon, the days’ heat creates winds to twenty knots.  Sail kiters practice for an upcoming competition.

La Cruz Anchorage: A Haiku

Hot May sun shimmers.

Thermals roil the anchorage,

Our last until fall.
