284 Miles to go
21 July 2016 | Pacific Ocean
We have now been 9 days out to sea and the end is in sight. We are all looking forward to hot showers and clean clothes. It has been good to "drop out" of daily life and do this adventure. Our days are spent simply sailing the boat, eating and sleeping. Always a few projects like dumping the excess water off the boat. We have been plowing through 5-6 waves minimally so we have been taking in a fair amount of water.
Some thoughts to share is that is good to have no cell phones and all of the other electronics that distract us from being in the moment. It has been great to just to sit and watch the ocean mile after mile with few thoughts in my mind except it is exquisite. We have enjoyed a full moon for the last two nights...having a night flashlight makes it easier to sail.
Jim, our navigator, threw out a fishing line. We are hoping to having sashimi and fish tacos today..
Everyone is tired and in good spirits knowing the end is in sight.
