It is 2:45am in the morning right now. We are about 20 hours into our trip to Cartagena. We have about another 56 hours ago (give or take a few). The winds have just died down but the moon is out now and it is orange, throwing a streak across the sea. Very cool. The water is glowing from these flosflourescents (sp??) in the ocean. We are so far ahead of our estimated targets but given that the wind has died down we may lose those 3 hours we gained. Alex was sea sick today but he seems to be feeling better now. His appetite seems unaffected by it, so that is good.
Amelia was popping around all day super excited, non stop talking. She can not wait to get back to Toronto. She made a list of all the clothing stores she is going to for a shopping spree and a list of all the restaurants she wants to eat at. She is talking about seeing all her friends and fantasizing about play dates, first day of school and even Halloween! I am hopeful that my mullet will look better once I take the hair straightener to it. I fear my bandanna will not go over well in the city. We all can't wait to come home.
Here is the link to our position report. We are trying to update every four hours. If you click on the dot we can put up to 80 characters for a comment and we usually do.
Have a great May 18th! My favorite day of the year.
