First Blog from Sea

It’s been little over a day at sea.  The winds have been cooperative at 15-25 knots.  We have had some rough swells, and I am still growing my sea legs.  I’m finally able to spend some time below (let alone write an email) without getting sick.  The stars are amazing!  The Milky Way is a white blanket across the night sky.  You can even see an occasional satellite streak across the black.  The wake of our boat is also spectacular.  Every now and then we hit patches of bioluminescent algae that glow a firefly blue.  We have some rough weather ahead.  A storm is brewing two to three days out that we are keeping a close eye on.  Should be fun.
