En route to Ascension Island - Sun eve 2 March
Day two into our trip to Ascension, and the wind has given up on us. We are struggling along with under 10knots of wind - I guess that is why it is called The Doldrums! At this pace we may only get to Ascension by Wednesday.
Life on Indigo continues at a very lazy pace - lots of reading & sleeping, with occasional burst of activity to fix something or make another meal. We are all eating far too much, and with no exercise can look forward to a few extra kilograms each! Today I had another "swim" - which means sitting in the scoop getting splashed by the occasional swell. The water is an incredible 29deg.
Tomorrow is Willy's wedding anniversary and so we plan to crack a bottle of bubbly and celebrate - perhaps Coenie will put on his pink dress that he has been threatening us with.
Love to you all xx
