WooHooo!!! Time to break out the peanut m&ms I’ve had hidden since Panama City, as we have just dipped under the 1000 miles to go mark on our way to Marquesas. A thousand miles…that’s still a really long way to go. Winds just won’t drop into the teens, so we continue to sail almost dead downwind with a double reefed main jacked and prevented waaaay out. Hopefully we can deploy a parasailor soon, but we’re making decent headway for the time being. Choosing safety and comfort over speed and chaos.
Boys took a detour off traditional curriculum to practice the fine arts of domestic engineering. Happy to report it’s clean sheet night with sparkling heads over on the port hull.
Continued success on the bread-making front. Banana bread, corn bread, biscuits, white sandwich bread, wheat sandwich bread, olive oil salt bread, and a batch of brownies. Diabetic’s worst nightmare. Running out of fresh fruit and veg. Down to final tomatoes and cukes, just a half dozen mealy red apples. Next up: dried apricots and craisins. Hmmmm, that might be a good bread addition…..
Dreaming of dry, non-moving land and a cold beer.
