At 10,000 Waves Communal and Women's hot tub, clothing is optional. At Ojo Caliente, swimsuits are required in communal areas. Ojo Caliente was originally built as a resort in 1868.

We arrived at our boat on the afternoon of Saturday, May 25th, Memorial weekend in Portland Oregon. In addition to catching up on blog posts, we are busy triaging the boat, and getting reconnected with our goods sent via Greyhound.
