Pelican Cays - Still Here!!!

Well, we are still here at Pelican Cay.  The wind continues to blow from 10 to 25 knots each day.  The days have been very overcast with no sun and very windy.  With the low temperatures, in the low 70s, it feels too cold to swim.  The water is still very warm, but we just have no desire to explore or snorkel.  The wind is still crazy outside, as I can hear it very loudly as it whines through the rigging.  The boat also continues to move around, but it is OK, as we have gotten used to the moving.  I am sure there are better anchorages, but so far we are happy staying here and waiting for the wind to die down.  I also thought about heading back to Placencia, as we would at least have Internet, but I hate to loose the ground that we have already made toward San Pedro.  The forecast for Sunday is still the 10 to 20 knots, coming from the northwest, so we may be here another full day.  We have had to run the engines about 45 minutes to an hour each day, as the cloudy weather has impacted our solar energy.  I hate running diesel for only to charge the batteries.  Let's see how tomorrow goes, and hopefully we can head north to a new anchorage. 
Patently waiting for the strong north wind to quit blowing!!!
We ended up staying here for four days!!!  I was ready for sunny skies and easterly breezes.
