sailing ..............

33* 49' N
158* 45' W

Hey all we have been motor sailing for the last 2 days with the odd engine off short sail. winds very light, have had a couple of squalls and went through a cold front. can sure feel the coolness in the air now. We have caught up to Malachi and they are just over a mile ahead of us. We are still making northernly, hoping the westerly winds will show up soon, not looking like they will until the weekend.

have been catching a ton of mahi mahi, so all of you at home can try some. you will love it , its very nice fish! ( not a fishy taste) - we had a great night with Malachi last night . but first the girls on Malachi called us to help with their school work. they are doing a project on being Canadian, so they asked us why we are proud to be Canadian and why we love Canada! what a fun time we had with that! So now I ask you to think of why you are proud to be Canadian!!

Anyway, later in the evening we had a fireworks show, Malachi had some left over from the forth of july celebrations! funs stuff!! ( the fireworks were let of into the water, none went up high in the air) and then we had a water balloon fight!! good fun, we were a fair distance away and it was very calm last night , not to worry!! it was fun. a nice way to break up the boredom ..................

today I made homemade pizza and some fantastic brownies, I must say the brownies were the best one yet!! very chewy and moist.... yum yum!! these small things are big on a passage!!

all are doing well, we have all watched the movie Spirit Bear and are homesick for BC - you must watch this movie, its a true story taking place in BC to do with the white spirit bears on Princess Royal Island...............

hugs, see you soon!

Hard to believe your trip is almost over...
Orca III is still sailing the ocean blue,
Heading for home with a very anxious crew;
The color of the water is now turning grey,
Seems bright, blue waters are behind them,
With each passing new day;
Almost two years gone by and they've done it all,
Tons of adventure & learning, they've been having a ball;
Once they are home, there'll be adjustments I'm sure,
But this crew has what it takes,
To find a loving cure;
You'll be welcomed home with hugs galore,
Your stories provding much laughter,
until we are all sore!
Safe travels on the last leg of your journey!!!
