Last night we were moving in the company of 4 white tropic birds. They did not squeak or snap, they were just flying around us for hours and hours. They must have felt encouraged and protected by the big white wings flying on Miss Molly. Normally seabirds land on deck or on the dinghy to have a rest and play stowaway. But not these 4, they just flew alongside, just as fast as we were moving.
Yesterday was grey & miserable, but today the sun is out. We are still motorsailing South in order to catch the wind at the right angle. We feel we can't be far off it, but seeing is believing. The seas have eased a lot, so today is definitely a better day out here!
