Nov 28, 10     Comments Off on Curacao Water Taxi’s, Punda, Insulinde, Curacao

Good morning guys, it’s still raining here and from the looks of it there is more to come! Yesterday morning I loaded up a bunch of long scrap wood pieces and took them and the dogs over the other side of the salt ponds to build another bridge. We have a trail here that goes along a power-line and at the bottom is now a big muddy mess of water due to all this rain and most folks can’t get thru it. So yesterday I carried a bunch of wood down there and made a so-so bridge to walk across it, it’s not the best but it will work for now. After that we ventured further and began cutting a small new trail to route folks around another very bad area, I didn’t get it done but should have it finished this morning. The rest of my day was spent doing errands like shopping and laundry but did get to the glass beach for some fun collecting. I was trying to remember when we last saw the sun around here for more than five minutes but I can’t remember, I am really tired of all this rain.
 
Here’s another photo from my day at the sailing regatta a few weeks ago. Because the sailboats were all in the harbor and lined up at the start/finish line the floating bridge was closed and the two water taxi’s were open for business. This strange looking boat or water taxi takes people from Punda to Otrabanda in just minutes and it’s one of the few things on Curacao that’s free. So for instance if a big cruise ship comes in or a big oil tanker they use these boats to get folks back and forth while our normal “floating bridge” is closed. The big ship to the right with the rusted anchor is the one and only Insulinde, a cruise ship of sorts that takes people on trips all over the island in rustic style!
 
Well it looks like rain again, I better get the dogs out, have a great weekend, Barry
