The seas have been quite fair to us thus far and today is no exception. The calm sailing has brought a sense of solace over the crew that seems to resonate from that around us. Warm tropical showers are enjoyed on deck, as the water temp is a roaring 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Life onboard is perceived well by all lately, and the anticipation of the crossing post-Cape Verdes is growing. We are getting just a taste of the quality sailing that the trade winds hold for us. Flying fish are now a regular sight off the bow as we break through the ominous ocean before us. I believe we could not ask for more pleasant times at this point in our journey. Now brings the closure to another day of life on board our home Argo.
