The last 24 hours have been uneventful, hooray. The winds have been light
and variable; we had a period of calm overnight which I pit to good use,
dropped the sails, drifted and got some sleep; and then some fog this
morning. I have had sails up and down in all sorts of combinations to keep
the boat moving, and now the sun is shining, the fog has lifted, we have a
light breeze from the west and are closed hauled on the port tack. It's
been slow progress but when it is such a beautiful day I don't feel in a
hurry to be anywhere else but right here.

All is well. Zzzzz.
