Stars on the Water

As I picked away at the guitar I looked out over the starboard rail and watched a dolphin jump! I grabbed the video camera and jumped too! As I captured a couple more of the small dolphin’s jumps I saw a few other dolphins in the distance. Our little dolphin friend raced up to the bow as did I and I video’d him racing around the bow. Every now and then he would race off about 200 feet back toward the group of dolphins and then come racing back. Almost as if he was a little kid yelling “Mommy Daddy come look at this!!” He stayed with us for about 2 minutes before heading back to the group but it sure was nice to have a guest!

Last night we saw stars on the water. It was a very dark night with clear skies and the shooting stars were out in force. As we made our way along a quiet black sea, every roll of water that came off the bow carried with it a starry sky-like illumination of phosphoresce. The brightest I’ve ever seen. Like each one was in fact a star on the water… Beautiful.

The winds kicked up in the night and we shut the motor off for a few hours and ghosted along at 12 kts in peace and quiet, but this morning we are back to our motoring ways waiting for a weather update from our routing service. We are trying to make a rhumb line course, but it is lots of motoring and very little wind on the stern, so it looks like we may have to head north some more to find decent pressure. The forecast looks very light all the way along, which sounds like pleasant sailing, but really means lots of sails slapping around as the boat pitches and rolls in the waves. Stay tuned!
