A Quick Plea from Punta Gorda
I don't have time for a full recap quite yet, though I will tell you that we didn't get very far north today. The winds were high, the waves were rough, and I was feeling a little pukey. We sailed into Punta Gorda, the nearest city, and now I'm struggling to find a way to Tanmpa. I've been in touch with Harborside Aviation, a flight school in the area, and depending on the weather and their pilots' schedule, they may be able to give me a ride. I also got in touch with one of the local tourism boards and they seem to have a few leads as well. Hopefully I'll have a real breakthrough in the morning, since I have a train to catch tomorrow afternoon. If you have any ideas, PLEASE get in touch. I'll give you a hug and a free pair of Keen shoes if you can get me out of here.
