We tried to reach “Alutia” on the radio this morning. We heard them, but they did not har our reply. They are hopefully well anchored in the Bay of Virgins behind the high mountains.
We had very slow progress the last 24 hours. We are a little suprised, because we had expected more, probably the night was slower than we thought, but as “Kea” has said: What’s the stress?
We are happy to have passed the two thirds milestone. Seeing a three digit number for the distance to the destination gives a good feeling.
The days are very much the same, chores, reading, conversations, communication, quizz, maybe a telephone call for one of the home bases etc. Today hairwash and waterproduction.
The meals are always a good experience.
But the fish simply will not bite.
