We have seen no ships,no other yachts,no airplanes,no dolphins,Gabriel saw a whale 3 days after leaving Galapagos otherwise none.It´s really a vast ocean and still in these days,feels very remote.We are happy for our daily radiocontact with fellow cruisers,knowing that the world is still alive out there.
Today though,the monotony was broken by a whaleshark,on countercourse to Tarita,cruising slowly just beside our port side.What a sight to see this worlds biggest fish and completely harmless planktoneater, cruising just beside us right in the middle of the ocean!
