Skyelark of London - 1000 miles down

Day 7 - Today marks 1,000 miles under our keel since leaving Las Palmas!  The stars at night are countless.  Early on, we had a particularly dark night due to the new moon and were able to see the bluegreen bioluminescence of dolphins swimming alongside the boat in the middle of the night.  Last night we had a small meteor shower as we kept track of another vessel just a mile or two off our starboard side.

The crew is settling into a nice routine.  Yesterday was deck shower day and today laundry day.  Sail changes are becoming more efficient.  We are enjoying some great music on the bluetooth speaker and have become accustomed to an afternoon team effort on NYT crossword puzzles.  Good teamwork all around!  Today we are blessed with good winds and are reaching our way west at good speed.  We caught a small dorado this morning, but decided to let it go in hopes of catching a tuna.  Keeping our fingers crossed!
