Meanwhile we're fishing and enjoying the heat. We're now around the same Latitude as Key West, FL and it's getting right tropical. Tiring of cereal and breakfast shakes, Danielle fired up the waffle maker and treated us to a hot breakfast. Might as well make use of all the power we're making while we motor!
No fish yet today, but we're hopeful for a Mahi dinner. We've seen some flying fish and other signs of life. We're all still regretting the Big One that Got Away yesterday afternoon. Well mostly all...Will isn't sure he wants me to catch one since I'm not going to try to make Blackened Mahi Mahi underway and I've got to try a new way to cook it. I hope he will be surprised.
Currently our navigation software has us showing up some time mid-day Saturday, which is sounding pretty good. Although, if we can, we will sail with lighter winds, which might push us off to Sunday. We do not want to approach a strange harbor in the dark either, so we will not pull in to Soper's Hole in the middle of the night; rather we will stand off shore and wait for dawn Sunday.
Everyone is sitting as far out of the boat as we can to still get shade and breeze. We're reaching the point where keeping the boat windows closed to avoid spray makes it rather...stuffy and hot...down below. But conditions are pleasant and we are all enjoynig the sun and fresh air.
(late update Caught a nice little 6-7 pounder right after I sent updates.)
