At Sea - Day 2 - December 1
07 December 2011
A game of scrabble on the deck!
Our second day out might have been the calmest weather we've experienced since leaving San Diego! And it's HOT! So far, no sightings of the migrating humpback whales but we saw some huge sea turtles swimming along the surface, and some flying fish. The kids kicked back all day, reading (Jamers), watching movies, making bracelets (Sydney), keeping cool. I didn't push any school on them for the day. Rick & I took turns going down below, making ourselves rest, even though neither one of us could sleep. It's good to just relax.
We decided to skip our original planned stop of Isle Isabel and continue on to Ensenada De Matanchen. Evidently there's a storm brewing off the mainland and we should plan on being in PV by Monday the 5th. We'll catch Isabel on the way back in the spring. This evenings night watch was very enchanting. The half moon hung in the sky, the stars shined brightly above, and out on the horizon it was almost fog like. The ocean was so calm, and these big round flashes kept appearing among the phosphorescent boat waves and just beyond. They must have been jelly fish. It was so beautiful.
