La Palma

Not to be confused with Las Palmas, the big port on Grand Canaria. La
Palma is an island in the Canary Islands. We got into Marina la Palma
this morning around 10:00 A.M., refueled, and moved to the slip that we
were assigned. It is a very nice marina. Apparently it's almost brand
new. The bathrooms are spotless, as are the showers, and the only bad
thing is the surge. According to Dad, when the wind goes into the east,
the swell gets into the harbor, causing a slight surge in the marina.
It's nothing serious, but it does make it a bit uncomfortable. We'll be
going into town later today, and hopefully we'll find a good supermarket
close by.
