Marina Bums!

We are all tucked up in a nice marina...Holiday Ocean View Marina on the garden island of Samal, off the coast of Davao in Mindanao in the Philippines.

We got checked in yesterday...Thanks to Stephen on Westward II spending all day with us yesterday taking us through the process.

To get from the marina to downtown, we have to take a free shuttle bus, a free ferry, and then a jeepney ride to town. It takes about an hour. And then "whoosh!" first world madness with the Philippine chaos thrown in (similar to the big cities we have been to in South and Central America). One whole floor of the huge mall was only electronics gadgets.

We got simmed yesterday... sims for our two phones and one for the internet onboard. Hopefully I'll get a chance to get everything updated soon... but there's a lot going on--hard to find time.

We are officially shopping for an air conditioner and maybe a used motorcycle.

At 08/05/2014 10:28 PM (utc) our position was 07°11.84'N 125°42.64'E
