motoring along......

current position is 38 59 N 158 42 W COG 004T speed 5.3 knotts -

calm calm seas! barely a ripple! have had the sun most of the day , now about 70% cloud cover. we are motor sailing, (after sailing for the last 2) made water all day - full! had showers , cleaned the boat and transferred all the fuel into the tanks. lots of projects done. feels good.

we are hoping the winds will pick up and will be doing our rum line to Juan de Fuca.... the gribs are showing wind, but they also keep changing.

with the water so calm we have seen lots of sail jellyfish, very cool . even saw a turtle, almost ran him over. I thought it was a bouy at first.

Kyle has been reading to Kill a Mockingbird! yeah, finally - he is liking it! Emma is in full force with her barbies and has had her dad make more swords and such, his newest creation is a sword for the head of the horse. Could be a new career for him?! hahaha Maya has finished all her books and is madly looking for more, today was a day of trying out different makeup .......

not much else to say,

this is Orca III on the side
