day 11 - visitors

I was sitting in the cockpit at sunset and nibbling on a bowl of olives, when a tall portside wave caught my attention. Right at that moment, a fin cut through the water: "Dolphins! Dolphins!" When this crew hears the call, we drop whatever it is we're doing and run on deck with goofy grins on our faces. (After clipping ourselves in, of course.)

If you have been reading our blog for some time, you already know we go a little nuts over dolphins. It just can't be helped. They're like endorphins from the sea, we both get the giddy vibe as soon as we see them playing with Nyon.

That was yesterday's high, that and eating fresh mangoes from Mexico. Mexico which seems like a distant memory already. We'll stick to the highlights today, Maintenance and repairs while not being necessarily awful, don't fall into that category, but they do help to bring the day's high to its full and well-deserved glory...

  1. Seeing another life form way out in the middle of no where with you is always exciting, as it's nice to know you're not alone. :-)
