Of Special Interest:
• The VHF radio came to life today after being silent for almost two weeks. Another French yacht on its way to Guadeloupe spotted us on their AIS and called to chat. Obviously they are just as bored as we are…
• Saw the legendary ‘green flash’ on the horizon as the sun set last night.
• Caught a brief glimpse of another Orca whale which came briefly alongside the boat this afternoon. This one was even more shy than the last one.
‘Delight of the Day:’ The Sun! We are so very grateful to have had so many lovely sunny days.
