Oh I forgot to mention last nights wildlife. We were cruising along and during the watch change between Richard and I, we heard snoring, assuming it was Joe from the forward cabin, at first we ignored it, but then something in the water ahead. We were about to run over a whale, who was obviously fast asleep on the surface and snoring. It made it past our bow, and without thinking we shone the big torch at it to get a better look. I think he had a rude awakening, and dived under the boat.
