8 July 2011
I thought we'd have a week or so before the green bananas started to ripen and that maybe they ripen a few at a time, but alas, this is not to be. They seem to be ripening at an alarming rate and we are all now used to the gentle thud as another banana falls off the 'tree.' We've never been so healthy, as we eat our way through passion fruit, bananas, pears, cauliflower, broccoli and all the other things that seem to have a short shelf life. Banana smoothies, banana muffins, banana in yoghurt are all the order of the day, several times a day! If only Mia and Lochy liked bananas!!
We have been enjoying the same conditions for the past 3 days now, with constant winds and maintaining good speeds. In fact I didn't think there was anything to much to report in today's blog. That was until a shoal of mini squid flew out the sea and hit Mark and I simultaneously in the face. Now at least we know how it is that we have several squid on our decks every day - they jump on board! I don't know what a group of squid is called. I know that it is a smack of jellyfish and somehow, that seems fitting for this little group of thugs! Current position: 02.55S 96.19W course 250 degrees
