Lazy days at sea

24 July 2016 | On top of the High

Today was a slow day of motor-sailing as we crawl eastward over the top of the Pacific High towards the Washington coast. Not a lot to complain about as the weather is mostly clear sunshine with the wind and seas light and from behind. Even the drone of the engine is somehow relaxing like it's lulling us to sleep. Or maybe that's the carbon monoxide? Regardless, we all tried to keep busy: Wendy defrosted and cleaned two freezers, I changed the oil in both engines and Gavin (surprise) worked out. There is also plenty of electricity and hot water so we can be profligate in the shower. I even had a daytime nap, which is unusual (again probably the carbon monoxide).

For dinner, Wendy pulled out all the stops in an effort to outdo my most majestical stir-fry from last night, but she wasn't playing fair since she knows that chili-dogs are a personal favorite of mine. She might have won too if she'd thrown in the obligate tater-tots.

The chart plotter says we have about 4.5 days and 570 miles left to go and the forecast suggests at least 2 more days like today before we can start sailing again. Good thing we have plenty of fuel on board, so that shouldn't be a problem. The only immediate danger is me growing too big for my foulies once we do start seeing that famous Pacific Northwest liquid sunshine.

All is well aboard Bangorang and looking forward to making landfall.
