Happy Independence Day!
Position: 48-10-07.7N 50-20-2.5W
Just 24 hours ago we hugged friends good-bye. The Newfoundland mountains have shriveled into the 360 degree horizon of rolling green swells. Clear, sunny, warm, and just enough wind to keep the sails full. Shearwaters glide and swoop. George just spotted our first whale, I only saw the white spume. Our four eyes are pealed now for the whole creature. No sea sick.
Love, Holly & George
