I still have about a week left in Puerto Rico anchored in San Juan bay; time in which I will check the boat, reprovision the boat to ensure I have sufficient basic foodstuffs for the whole of June and develop a passage plan based on a preferred “weather window”.
The title “Bermuda Triangle 2019” describes the triangle of my proposed ocean passages from Puerto Rico to Bermuda and then on to New York, while relating to the book “The Bermuda Triangle” by Charles Berlitz which piqued my interest in the late 1970’s. The book was based upon a series of conspiracy theories about unexplained aircraft and sea vessel disappearances in that region.
The header photograph is the San Felipe del Morro fort which guards the entrance to San Juan bay in Puerto Rico.
In the extra time I had in San Juan I also found Condado beach for some fabulous early morning runs and visited my latest “Best Bar in the World”, Marilyn’s Place, dedicated to my teenage sweetheart, Marilyn Monroe and which sold a local craft beer, Ocean IPA brewed in nearby Isla Verde.
