Title: On the way to Darwin

Apologies to all about the use of “disaster” for the broken Kindle....must try to keep a sense of perspective. Luckily WD has a small library of books, I’ve just finished Stephen Covey, ‘First Things First’  and I’m currently reading ‘Around the World in Eighty Days’ - thank you for your present Jean Ramsey! it seems totally fitting and a real sanity saver to have something to read, especially on the long night watches. There is something quite special and tactile about settling down with a real book. However, Denis’ Paperwhite Kindle is still the envy of half of the entire crew. Just as well it is dry weather, as water and real books don’t work, where as the Kindle can go in a waterproof pouch.
 
The light winds continue and we are making steady, all be it slow, progress.
 
Crew and boat in fine fettle. Running out of fresh produce and being creative with the sachets, packets and tins...got to have some interesting tit bits during the day to keep the spirits up.
As we are approaching Cape Wessel in the next couple of days, I’ll be getting the fishing rod out. Fingers crossed, not too much luck so far in that direction.
