Yesterday's northerly gradually declined and by 20:30 our boat speedways down to 1.9kts, we have been motoring pretty much ever since (yes Mum we have plenty of fuel) ;-).  The sea is flat calm and a steel grey colour, nothing happening on the fishing front.  We have seen the odd turtle (well not odd, rather perfectly normal barnacle encrusted sea turtles I'd say, I guess they have probably been refused entry at Galapagos).  So on with the constant background drone of the Volvo as we cut our way though the calm, disturbing an otherwise perfect tranquility of ocean this morning.

The girls are attempting school however I should note that enthusing them in this sticky heat is one of life's wee challenges.
