So there’s one thing I never expected to need on this passage….polar fleece. And, yet, here I am, bundled up in fleece snuggled into the cockpit under a blanket! No, I’m not complaining, it’s just a surprise.
All is well and it’s great to be out sailing again. The time we spent at the island was terrific. We saw a manta ray, swimming/flying at the surface, a momma and baby whale, and another whale flopping in the water – Richard was able to see that one on the radar – pretty cool.
