Over halfway

It’s a good feeling to move into the second half of the trip. We have approximately 460 nm’s to go which should mean landfall on Sunday evening. Yesterday the winds were fairly light and today they have filled in a bit more. We’re doing a consistent 6 knots but it would be nice to get a bit more of a push tomorrow. We already anticipate having to motor for the last day.

We’re not too bored yet… I’ve read 3 novels, Will has read a few magazines, and we’re taking turns reading out loud from the South Pacific Guide and Soggy Paws Compediums (a cruising guide). Now that we’re doing the research, we realized how cool Niue and Tonga sound! Can’t wait to get there…

Lots of love to everyone at home xoxo

    Tonga is a gorgeous cruising mecca ……people there are terrific! I would so love to go back there for a month or so. We delivered a boat and I spent a month just cruising around. Enjoy! Here’s to fair winds and full sails.
