Wonder who was most nervous, the parents or Erika. Today we started school on board. It was kind of strange to take a different role, even Erika got a little bit confused, but we will get used I guess.
Yesterday we had a great day at sea with Mary and Kelvin, we sailed ín 20 knots of wind with hardly no waves. Great speed! Then we went up Fal river with Salsa, winding along the english landscape and suddenly there where big ships anchored in the middle of the "forest". Mary told us that Falmouth harbour captain has been very smart to sell extremely protected moorings for the ships when not in use. How they got them up there was hard to believe when the tide was low.
Picture from the trip will follow.
Today we are trying to build a cart for Andreas to pull after the bicycles, but just to get to a store is an adventure.This morning, Ellinor and I walked with a big piece of plywood from a building store to the boat. Looked quite funny, it seemed from the people in the cars.
The low pressures are building up like trains on the atlantic and Im starting to wonder if we will ever get out of here...
