Saturday & Hurricane Igor Leftovers...

It's Saturday!  We thought about walking up to Pueblo and visiting PC Paradise next door to Golden Rock Shopping Center. PC Paradise is the local Authorized Apple Repair Center and we need to take the headphones from our new 4GB iPod Shuffle to be exchanged as they didn't work out of the box. But it's probably best to go on a weekday, and it might be kind of rough over at the dinghy dock.

Our Shuffle is a tiny unit and at a good price. The following week, Apple came out with the new iPod Shuffles but only in a 2GB version. The new ones have the controls on the unit and not on the headphones.  The headphone controls probably seemed like a good idea but didn't work out in actual use.

Last night I turned on the radio while reading in bed and they had an announcement by the Lt Gov and a few other officials warning people to stay away from the shoreline as there were 25-foot seas and that water was breaking over the Boardwalk. The swell has reduced during the night and the waves breaking out on the reef aren't as spectacular as yesterday but still kind of cool from a distance.  The upside is that we don't have many powerboats zipping around and causing big wakes in the anchorage :)

Tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day !
