8th Day - Confused Seas, Ugh!

George and Sue Stonecliffe
We were happy to see the sun this morning. Neither of us could sleep very much last night due to the extreme rocking of the boat from side to side with the sea state. George's attempt to make scrambled eggs for breakfast was valiant, especially since the whipped eggs landed first all over the counter and later on the floor while attempting to pour them into the frying pan. Fortunately we have plenty of eggs to make up for accidents. Changing heading from west to south smoothed our way. It's noon as I write this and the winds are beginning to abate from 20-24 knots all night long to 18-20 knots. A boobie landed or rather, fell into our cockpit after breakfast and stayed long enough for another photo session but left his mark before leaving. Saltwater cleans it up nicely.
