If you have seen on the news about the Japanese Earthquake, you will know that there was a Tsunami warning out for most of the pacific. It is still ongoing, I believe, for some places in central and south america. I found out about it this morning while trying to get internet, and (failing to learn much about it, since the connection was slow) promptly panicked.
Since I didn't know how much time I had before a towering wall of water was supposed to arrive, I assumed that I didn't have much time at all, and got my anchor up as quick as I could. Then another cruiser showed his head, and he told me the waves would arrive (if they arrived) At about 1:00, and I had plenty of time. So I took off and sat around on the pacified ocean for most of the day, avoiding the container ships that were all leaving the Port of Manzanillo for deeper water. I had never seen a Tsunami before, and I still have not seen one yet.
Anyways, I am alive, everything is ok on the boat, and as far as I know, there wasn't even a wave here at all.
So an exciting day for me. I'm almost feeling better. Not good, yet. Its like the first step on the stairway to heaven. The trouble is, I am in Hell right now, so I have a long way to go before I get better.
