The last night at sea?...
5 Jul 2009
After 11 weeks at sea, our concept of time has completely gone to pot! Last night flew by in an instant but every minute seems to last an eternity.
Your weather dances and gift to Neptune has all been worthwhile as the weather is now in our favor and we're moving on a good course towards the finishing line ... with good speed. As the GPS is about to turn on to 49.9 we're ever so hopeful that tonight will be our last night on the great ship Pura Vida.
We've passed away the last few hours playing 'cat and mouse' with cargo ships. At one point last night we could see three different ships on the horizon within 6nm of us. All of them looking enormous. "Sante Isabel" came within 1nm of us and we just couldn't get over the sheer size of her. What struck us even more however was how she just completely disappeared from sight when we dipped to the bottom of a wave - a reminder of just how big the Indian ocean swell can be!
With another Angel now free of leg hair, the prepearation for land is really now happening ... if you could all say one last little prayer at bed time tonight for us ... we hope tomorrow night we'll be able to settle into a day, clean, warm, bed that doesn't move!
