Well, today is Wednesday. And it is day 14 at sea... I think. The days just kinda run together. Not much happening around here today. The excitement for today? Laundry.

We turned the engine off around 11:00am and have been sailing slowly at 3 knots since. We hit a small rain cloud early this morning. But since then we have had beautiful bright blue skies. It is getting warmer too. The sun isn't setting until 7:30pm, Tom and Amy's time zone.

While checking in to the 'Puddle Jump Net' I heard a couple boats are all ready at Hiva Oa, and a bunch that should arrive there tomorrow. We received an email from a boat that is there and they said it's gorgeous. They said that it is well worth the trip, and the people are great! It seems like it will be forever until we get there.

I'm getting nervous about our provisions. We are officially out of fresh fruits and vegetables. I made chicken fried rice for dinner with canned veggies. And we are having fruit cocktail for dessert. Can't wait to get my hands on the island fruits.

That's all from us. Talk to you tomorrow.

Amy and Tom
