Change of plan

Change of plan
In case you were wondering how we fill our time whilst sailing, I thought I'd let you know a few things I think about and do whilst at sea (can't speak for the others!) Whilst on watch, I spend a lot of time looking out to the sea. Looking for other ships, obviously, but also, it's amazing what little things can catch your eye and make you smile. Like a huge shoal of flying fish. Or a butterfly. Or just the light on the sea, depending on the time of day. I don't want to wax lyrical now, but it is nice to have time just to appreciate the moment. And then, when I'm tired of that, I make some bread. Now, I don't want to blow my own trumpet, but toot toot on the bread making front! Loaf after light fluffy loaf on a daily basis. I think I have actually turned into Delia Smith on this trip. I even made some TVP (textured vegetable protein) taste good, in the absence of catching any fish! We've also all been reading a lot; I've got about 6 books on the go at the mo; War and Peace (will I EVER get through it, and why am I trying to in the first place?!) Birds without wings, a bookswap book about Turkey that I am thoroughly enjoying and I reward myself with if I get through a chapter of W and P., a book on navigation, a book on Panama, and one on the Pacific, and then Lochy sometimes lets me read his 5th Harry Potter book with him - The Order of the Phoenix.
Oh, as I was saying, a change of plan. As there has been NO wind again today and we have had the engines on for ages, we are stopping off at Cartegena (Columbia) to re-fuel and depending on whether we have to pay for a cruising permit, maybe spend the day there. We've had to slow down so we don't arrive at night, but should be there at first light. And I haven't even told you about the hour we spent dodging logs last night and the hour of dolphin action....I hope I'm going to have some comments on my blog by the time I arrive tomorrow, otherwise, I'll be mortally offended!

Having met whilst sailing on Bob's boat, there always was a vague plan that we would at some stage sell the house, buy a boat and sail round the world. Unfortunately, we didn't have a house. That was 9 years ago. [...]
