We are getting there, just very slowly. The wind is still right on the nose, too weak to sail, to strong to motor fast into. So we will arrive off the island just after dark, and have to wait about to get in during daylight hours. The bay at the entrance to the island group is supposed to be full of whales at this time of year, so perhaps we will see/hear them during the night, and swim with them in the morning?

We shall see.
