Another Beautiful Day!!

I usually don't enjoy passage making. Living in the cockpit, never seeing more than blue water and blue sky, with nothing to do gets VERY boring. Even taking a shower is difficult!! But this passage has been AWESOME! You can do everything when it's this calm, besides cartwheels! From making the whole crew breakfast, my soon to be famous egg, ham, and cheese sandwich that I make warm on the stove, to whipping up eight small eclairs.It has been wonderful, right now we are on a broad reach sailing from 5.5 - 6.5 knots and according to the GPS we are supposed to arrive at West Caicos around 3pm. Although the clouds have been hovering around the horizon making it not very good for a green flash, we have had a gorgeous sunset. Lighting up the sky with reds,oranges, and my favorite pink! If it keeps up like this I'm going to get a very good nights sleep :)

These were taken when we bought her in 2006. The biggest interior change was removing the top bunk in the walkthrough (Wyatt's room) and making it a storage area. Yes - this boat has a TUB!
