Today we fully settled into passage life appreciating the simple delights of life on a boat. This morning or watch team enjoyed a moonlit deck, brilliant stars and a gorgeous sunrise all in the span of four hours. In PSCT class we discovered the wonders and diversity of fog whether it hail from the coast, the land, or the open ocean. The fishing was bountiful. Ian caught a 15-pound Skipjack tuna trolling off the stern so we enjoyed fresh caught sashimi hors d’oeuvres backlit by a South Pacific sunset. Unfortunately, a large pod of pilot whales rudely imposed upon our dinner and games of chess unannounced causing loads of commotion. As we steam forth into an ocean seemingly teeming with life we hope our good fortune continues.
