Good Morning!
We had a nice day yesterday with flat seas.  The only downside was motoring rather than sailing.  Of course there was a steady stream of big ships all day and all night last night.

We fried up some corn Arapas and put taco meat, beans, lettuce and tomatoes on them for supper.  They were Great!  The. We watched the final episode of the first season of "The Walking Dead" we have seasons 2 and 3 but I think we may need something more for that long passage to Hawaii.

Beck is worried about her grandmother who is not doing well at all and will be flying home for one week once we get to Las Suenos.  The kids and I will check out Costa Rica and make sure the boat is ready for the big leg to Hawaii.

We may stop along the way to top off our fuel just to be on the safe side.  We have had to motor at higher RPM yesterday than normal because of adverse current.  Right now we have favorable current so it probably balances.  Bob, could you please send me the position for a good fuel stop?

This morning there were LOTS of big dolphins swimming around the boat and some were jumping out of the water SUPER high.  Amazing athletes!

I'm still amazed that we are here in the Pacific...

Kristofer, Rebecca, EmilyAnne, Kanyon, Kaleb, and Benny
