We are now entering the a high pressure system to our NW where we'll lose the wind altogether, but will be able to motor due North until we can pick up the West winds that will push us home. The skies are grey and gloomy and tend to make one feel a little down. When it's the only thing you've got to look at, it's nice to have a little variation in colour, some blue is always welcome and we can even enjoy little pockets of black because there's usually a rainbow accompanying the storm clouds.
We've now been at sea for a whole week and have all settled nicely into the rhythm of the passage. We're all very excited about our homecoming and are crossing off the days on the calendar until that time.
