Companions at Sea

21 April 2009 | Offshore Bahia Magdalena, North of Cabo San Lucas
By Capts. Dave and Desiree
We are now spending more days at sea than on land, so our tales are limited, which is a good thing. When we change guards on our nightshifts, we ask one another, "Anything exciting on your shift?" "Nope," is the typical answer lately, which is just how we like it.
No more episodes of the anchor "self-deploying," or any other adrenalin stimulating events.

We have been seeing many dolphins, and just over the last 18 hours have caught two yellowtail fish. We are aware that this passage is good fishing grounds, so we hope to keep our freezer full of fish. Last night was fish prepped in the oven, and fish tacos are on the menu tonight. We are even having Bill's (previous crew) special black beans. Let's hope they come out as tasty as his. We'll let you know Bill.

During these calm hours, we continue schoolwork, do lots of reading, nap between shifts, and just stare out into the blue ocean. One of our recent sighting was the Mexican Navy ship off our starboard. The ship seemed to be patrolling the waters, and since we gave them no reason to approach us, they continued cruising on by. So life is tranquil on the high seas at present, and we are taking in stride these undisturbed times.
