Isobel the climber, reached around the edge of the settee, palmed a hunk of bread and proceeded to take bites out of it... (note wool shirt and sweaters on both of us!)

Pete has been off the boat for only 24 hours and we miss him. He has been a wonderful guy to have around. A philosopher willing to throw his body between the boat and the dock. A guy that generates peace who is happy at the wheel or up the mast. His music was inspiring. He always said good things about people avoiding the human desire to criticize. Generous and kind to all three of us, he was always able to make Isobel smile even when she was unhappy about something. We are looking forward to seeing his boat "Sea Pod" broad reaching on the horizon. Really, it is beyond language to express how much we enjoyed getting to know him. Pete, call us if you need crew.
A short jauntBill, 68 in the cabin

We have seen lots of dolphins out in the ocean at night and in rivers and harbors. Can you imagine how hard it is to get a shot of them. Here is a photo of Sea Hawk pushing a load of fuel up the Savannah river. there were many dolphins playing in their bow waves. We chatted on the radio and they say that the dolphins are there alot and they often walk to the bow to hang over and watch them!

Today we saw a little of everything... first down the ICW (see video) with Bink to the Wynah inlet... then out into the open ocean, sailing through the night past Charleston, SC and on to Savannah, GA. We were in dense fog from about midnight to 9 am.

Today, a walk on the beach and an early Mexican dinner at the surfer's hang out. But that misses a bunch of the story...
