Days One and Two
17 January 2011
With last minute preparations being ticked off the list with the help of Alan and Chloe at a rate of knots, and the food provisioning done, on Saturday 15th January 1pm, we finally left Puerto Calero after nearly 4 weeks. We had loved Lanzarote - it was great to meet people, and Lochy was especially sad to leave Kieran after having such a great play mate for three weeks.
Chloe's mum and dad were there to wave goodbye and as soon as we left the marina, we were reminded rather rudely of a couple of things we hadn't tied down as the swell was fairly lively. The first couple of days have mostly consisted of everyone finding their sea legs - Mia and Chloe are still to locate them, but they've booked them for tomorrow. We had a lovely few hours of spinny flying when the wind dropped, but then a reef in the main as we came through the islands. Now, no land in sight, but the sun is setting in the right direction and it's a beautiful sunset at that.
