............well we know it isn't but we passed the half way stage this morning so decided to celebrate with some smoked salmon and champagne (kindly donated by Martin and Marilyn from Rocking Horse) for this occasion. Not with a white table cloth and silver ware, but in Andromeda's cockpit, in the sunshine, and enjoying the view of the deep blue sea. We have no wind at present, nor are there any clouds in the sky, so are motoring for while to get through this part of a high pressure system. This after two days of lovely sailing for change. Anyway, we are really pleased to have made this milestone and are keen to get the wind and get going once again, bound for Horta.
Susan was a bit confused this morning when she saw a lght above the horizon and thought it was the mast head light of a yacht - only it wasn't, just one of the light night stars making an appearance. Still its something we all do at times. We did however see a tanker under ballast heading SE - it passed about 4 miles astern soon after dawn this morning, but alas are Shreawater-less - no wild life observed for nearly 24 hours. Where has it all gone?
We are however getting all the damp stuff dried!
More in due course......
