Good Morning!

Hey!  We saw WHALES as we sailed away from Water Island yesterday!!

Wandering Dolphin is doing her thing.  She is capable of about 9.5 right now but the family is not up for it.  We are quite comfortable right now.  All systems are good with the exception of the water maker.  I have to add a lift pump to the water supply when we get to Panama.  When we are heeled over to starboard at all it doesn't get enough water into the filters to make water.

Rebecca and the kids are all doing ok.  Benny still has his cold so he is not himself yet.  Rebecca must be feeling OK since she is pulling out all of her St Paddy's day beads and stuff with plans to make us all wear it or be pinched!  I think I will make a Corned Beef supper tonight which will NOT please EmilyAnne because she thinks it looks like dog food.

I LOVE the Vesper Marine AIS and my Navionics chartplotter all on my iPad!

Day 1 Down, My guess is 70 days at sea left to Bellingham Harbor.

Kristofer, Rebecca, EmilyAnne, Kanyon, Kaleb, Benny
