sunny on thom's birthday
It is Thom’s birthday (24) today. I think David depressed him saying he is 25 and he is what he will look like in a year. I always thought David was inhis 50s.
Everyone has settled down into their own rhythm; lots of sleeping and acceptance that arrival time will be whenever we get there. The “when will we get there” questions have disappeared, which is normal after a few days. This trip is more relaxed than the last one when we were continually fixing the boat or contacting people 12 hours time zones away to learn how to fix things. I hope I am not jinxing us, mentioning this.
In 39 miles we enter the area our weather
maps show as having very light winds. Hopefully, this time they are not so
accurate. Several flying fish have launched themselves on board.
Too small to eat so we return them to the sea. It is still a bit bouncy
for anyone feeling like putting out our fishing line. Starting to read
When we entered
Now halfway through Paul Theroux’s
Another slow day of activity for us, but fast one for babelfish.
