Today would make for much better beach weather than sailing weather. This morning when we were moving along nicely we uncovered some of the deck chairs and enjoyed some outdoor time in the sunshine. This afternoon has been a different story -- The weather remains beautiful, but the wind is illusive. We thought today might be a bit of a slog and unfortunately we have not been disappointed.
Our moments of excitement today have included numerous whale sightings and a Canadian Coast Guard boat which turned a few circles around us.
