The food gods of Ensenada must have read my last post and smiled, because Wednesday afternoon our new friends Eric and Patty stopped by bearing sunflowers and telling tales of a health food store they found that shared a building with a winery, bakery, and fromagerie. A cheese market, "full of organic cheeses," Patty said, "and logs of chocolate!" Cheese shop! Logs of chocolate! Yes, please!
So Thursday morning, Eric, Patty and I set off on a 20 minute walk up Miramar Street and came upon a lovely alley way of quaint brick buildings that felt reminiscent of my favorite shops on College Avenue. Also in stock at the fromagerie: salsa de chapulines. I opted for an assortment of olive bread, cheese, and chocolate instead.
In other news, we're back in the water, wrapping up our boat projects, and provisioning up for a Monday departure (yowza!). The satellite phone is up and running, so we can download weather data and post to the blog on the go. We're planning to do a test sail tomorrow afternoon, and are looking forward to sharing some of Helios' shiny new features.
