We’ve gotten off to a very slow, and relatively tame, start, though the acting SC had a few moments of distress early in the passage adapting to his new home doing strange and unpredictable movements. But now, 24 hours later, he is back in his customary position on top of the dry-provision’s cupboard attending to his grooming. The first mate, on the other hand, I am pleased to report has fulfilled and exceeded all her duties, particularly in the galley.  She’s even given the heads a good going over.

I was hoping to be at anchor in America River by now but due to the very light winds we are still some fifteen miles short. Hopefully we will be there by this evening.

All is well.
