Dany II...still no signs of slowing down, but at lest we're making good time toward our destination...only 583 mi. to go...winds are stil 20-25 SW, with a large southerly swell, & wind chop on top of that...we get the odd splash in the cockpit, but otherwise, its fairly dry...the temperature has been perfect ever since we reached Salalah...bathing suits during the day & t-shirts & shorts at nite...one of the things we've been a bit disappointed by has been the lack of good sunsets...usually on long ocean passages like these, we get some really spectacular ones, perhaps we'll get one tonight since there are lots of fluffy clouds near the horizon...oh well, at least we've had the moon with us...it's been so bright, you could almost read by it...it definately makes night watches easier...we're still  not near the shipping lanes, so we haven't seen any traffic for a couple of days now, just us & the flying fish...more tomorrow, D2 & crew
