Oh why oh why whenyou really want to be somewhere does the final bit take so long, it doesn't help that there is almost no wind and even with all our sails up we are making slow progress , it is almost worth findind the squall as that is where the wind is , but then there is too much...... so just onwards and forwards ... we had a movie night last night and I made two huh- yooge bowls of popcorn with a lovely crispy toffee glaze .. all helps to keep up moral which in fact is ridiculously high.
We have had a productiveday today , everyone has topped up their tan and Robbie and I finished our specially knotted nautical bracelets which will be a little christmas gift for a chosen few and I wrapped up all the christmas present I have on board as our four children will be in St Lucia 3 days before us !!! I hope the beaches are comfortable for them as their accomodation is still bobbing on the Atlantic......
Gossip .... a boat near to us called 'Blue Tarn' was attacked by a 9ft hammerhead shark that tried to eat their duogen ( a generator that is towed in the water) how scary is that ? and we dangled Robbie over the side yesterday so as he could get his feet wet ...What if?
Well we are counting down the miles but it really is idyllic out here and we are loving every second , almost don't want to arrive ,, scrap that I need to party.. it is christmas ....Robbie shark bait!.......
