Almost There

We are about 14 hours away from Madeira. We will be docking at the port of Funchal for a few days to wait out the storm and make repairs. Our propane stove sprung a leak today. Add that to the list...

Today was a many shades of gray kind of day. The sky was overcast and we could see squalls on the horizon. Luckily they seemed to mostly miss us and we were able to make steady progress. The highlight of the day came when we were visited by a school of dolphins. These Portuguese dolphins looked very different than their brethren in the Grand Banks. They were a little smaller and had grey freckles. They sure liked to jump, though! They exploded through the waves with remarkable force.

Shane, I am looking forward to seeing pictures of those dolphins. What a sight, I'm sure! Glad you will reach port soon. Love, Mom

Shane, I am sure glad you are getting close to land, and I am glad for your mom too. Hope you wait until good weather before you go out again. Can you put any pictures on this site? Vernon
