Oahu-Neah Bay: Day 3

Conditions are improving. The seas are settling a bit and the wave trains a little more organized. Last night was quiet enough I actually slept a bit on my off watch, or exhaustion took over. Regardless, this morning is sunny and fair and we seem to be making good progress. Last night, despite the rough seas, Wendy turned out a fantastic Mexican fajitas dinner. Gavin and I feasted! We also picked up a hitch hiker bird that I didn't know was on top of the bimini until I climbed out to look at the stars and found myself only 8 inches face-to-bill from him. I'm not sure who was more surprised, but he stood his ground. It couldn't have been easy landing up there. As faras I know, he stayed there all night. We are starting to get into our passage making rythym of watchkeeping, eating, reading and sleeping, all in equal measure.

Our current strategy is to continue north until at least 30N where we should be outside the influence of hurricanes, then decide how to tackle the Pacific High, depending on it's forecast position and movement. The final leg will be the 900 miles or so East over to Neah Bay, but that is still awhile from now.
