Just had awesome lunch of Mary’s chili combined with Jackie’s shipmade cornbread. Gathered in the cockpit, reeling off the miles, listening to some tunes and having that great lunch, we confess to feeling a bit sorry for the rest of the world, not being here. We are beguiled by the sea.
Yesterday’s TED talk was Matt, on HVAC and energy efficiency. He is passionate on the topic, which is a joy to behold. Very lively discussion ensued.We then had calm enough winds for our first poker game. Tom cleaned up. Today Jackie will speak on making bread. We are all washing our hands, as this will be interactive.
We saw our first whale today, a small fin whale. He blew us a kiss from about 30 yards away and leisurely dove down.
Finally, Liz exclaimed today that she was excited we were almost at the Azores. She has become a blue water sailor, since we are 425 miles away!
Love to all, MJ
