I slept in this morning. Travel day. I awoke at 5:00 and went straight to the
computer to see if we'll be bluefin fishing tomorrow or yellow-finning up. Bluefin
it is. 10 knot flags out there all day tomorrow. Nice. So we didn't fish at all
today. No reason to. We traveled through 4 other boat wakes from yesterday and
they didn't stop the boat so we weren't going to cost us tomorrows fishing time to
try and prove them wrong. I trust our code boats. The weather traveling up has
been ideal all day long. The passengers did what they do, movies, books, and
relaxation while the crew took it easy and did some chores at a reasonable pace.
We did a lot of organizing of things. We went through crates and boxes and nuts
and washers and bolts and things like that and just made sense of it all. The crew
even got around to detailing our beautiful teak rails.
The bluefin reports sounded good today so we're excited about getting up there for
a couple of days to finish up the trip. We'll either spend 2 days blue-finning or
we'll do 1 day here and go get our yellowfin on for the last day. I'm not sure.
That's what's so exciting about it all!
I may not sleep well tonight I'm so excited. Maybe it's because the 1.5 hour after
lunch nap I took and/or all the coffee I've drunken since then. Not because I'm
tired, I just love coffee. I'm kidding. I'm sure I'll sleep fine. I've been doing
this a long time.
My daughter turned 5 months yesterday. People say the time flies and they're
right. It sure does.
