On passing the Amazon delta we wondered whether there would be any colouration of the water. Having passed it now, we saw no sign of any, but then we are several hundred miles out. Our original course from FdN (had we stopped) would have taken us a lot closer.
Almost saw our first ship today! A small cargo boat heading for Norway of all places. However, it stayed on the other side of the horizon and we just watched it on AIS. 17 days is our record for being at sea without seeing anything, so we're getting close to that.
For those that are dying to know - yes, the bread did taste as good as it looked. More will have to be baked!
