slowly eating the elephant.
We are having a break from fishing we have caught 3
dorados, also known as Dolphin fish, but we try not to use the D word
whilst wacking the fish over the head to kill it!! Cooked a very tasty
green fish curry which went down a treat!! Our fishing has been pretty
successful with Dorado being landed to order.Red plastic squid seem to be
the most popular lure. Leaving them alone for a day or two to vary the
diet.On the food front onions and spuds are fantastic, and much under rated,
last for ages and add spice and comfort.to all our cooking, still have fresh
fruit left and a few tomatoes. Tons of tins and packets so will not run out of
grub. Water holding up well and I am the water nazi snarling at people
whenever they turn on a tap for more than 2 seconds.
Currently under engine at about 4.5knots as
wind went very light first thing this morning, After the first week when we were
running at about 6-7 knots in 20 + knots of wind, this seems a bit slow, to
say the least.
Been following the story of the guy who hid for 5 years to claim the
insurance money, last we heard both he and his wife were in court on fraud
charges, any more details would be welcome, we just get headlines from
Still working on the Sardine entry for next years Turner Prize, current
