On passage

Another slow day but there are signs of the wind picking up at last as well as changing direction. Just avoided a rain storm and now that the sky has cleared it is HOT again (32 c)!
Had am amazing display of Pilot Whales yesterday afternoon. There were about 8, perhaps 10, just lolling and diving all around. It was a breath-holding 40 minutes. We switched the engine off and watched these beautiful creatures. They came right up to the boat, and one or two managed a somersault. See how calm the sea is!
Let's hope we see more of them.
