Firefly - Blue sea
No visits from our friendly whale yet today but plenty of blue sea and sunshine to keep us happy. The trade winds continue to blow us along but just a little more please. The fridge is still working well but running down of fresh food, there is now room for the chocolate including our chocolate advent calendar donated by Jane which is opened (so far only by Peter) on the early morning watches (the others at present prefer the other sources of chocolate stored around the boat). Murray is perfecting his yoghurt mix and is on his 3rd batch; he will be competition for Mr. Meuller by the time we get to Antigua. We have all had showers today so the boat is quite fragrant.
If you receive this in good time our SSB radio is still performing well, so far most of the messages have been relayed via Ostende in Belgium however recently we have been communicating via Lunenburg Nova Scotia, There is a network of sailmail land stations all around the world and we are impressed how they look after us.
Paul, Murray, Peter and Grateful (getting regular mail from G2)
