How do you spell Relief?

05 June 2008 | Passage in the Gulf Stream
How do you spell Relief? Daisy's answer; it feels great to finally pee! We have been away from land for over 48 hours and Daisy has not gone to the bathroom yet. She doesn't like to pee/poop on the deck but when land is not insight...She could hold it not longer and finally relieved herself, on the boys' closed hatches, this morning! Doggy treats for Daisy! She was quite excited afterwards and ran around the boat prancing and barking. We had a great sail last night and then the wind died this morning and we had to turn on the "iron genny' (aka motor). We have been motor sailing all day and it has been a warm one. Lots of time reading books/magazines (thank you Kathy and Tracy) and the boys have watched a movie. We are presently 90 miles off the coast from Jacksonville, FL and still riding the gulf stream. However the current is not as brisk here, we are only gaining 1.5-2 knots. Day 3- wish there was more wind.
