Somewhere off Colombia

It's about noon, there's very little wind as we motor along the Colombian coast--around 20 miles offshore. We'll soon be off Santa Marta, then tonight we cross the estuary of the great Magdalena river--keeping well out, as apparently it brings a lot of rubbish with it into the ocean--from trees to dead cows!! And then we drop down to Cartagena tomorrow, expect to be there mid afternoon.
All well. Sleeping well and watches are working out between the 2 of us. Chicken thawing out for lunch--with chilli and rice i think--yum! Not much else happening really. Just wish there was a good wind to sail by--but if you pick a good weather window, I guess this is what you get--no wind!
