(Underway, 164 Nautical Miles)
I was going to say, I find it surprising how comfortable life is out here in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. That would be a lie. There’s nothing surprising about it. The wind is tame and steady, driving us forever towards our destination; the swell is decently sorted, pushing us from behind as we surf westwards; and what’s more, I’m in my home surrounded by all the things I need with every creature comfort.
An ordinary day at home starts with bacon and eggs, is dotted with some successful fridge repairs, and wrapped up with homemade pizza and a couple increasingly competitive rounds of Monopoly. The reality of being thousands of miles out to sea is simply a wonderful reality.
