Once again we headed out to sea. Leaving docks and going onto docks have a lot of things in common like they both use an engine and have to use dock lines and oh your always sure to hear a mouthful of swear words. Although mom and dad aren't 16 anymore that side of them sure as hell comes out in a stressful situation.They put a whole new meaning to the saying, "swearing like a sailor".
Anyways we made it off the dock without TOO much of a problem and headed out to sea for a nice long 3 day sail. It's so weird to be back out on the ocean again just this time with a new boat. Back out here exploring new waters with the same old "mother ocean" as mom calls it.
We left the dock at about 4 o'clock and said good bye to France. Goodbye to fresh cheap baguettes and cheese. Goodbye to great people and a lovely landscape. All I can is that I will be back...at some point in my life.
The sail went AMAZING in our books but in others it might be called unfortunately eventful. Filled with fishnets in propellers, high seas, seasick crew, throwing up crew and frozen meals. But anything is better than the ominous Galapagos trip.....try #1. Where...well...let's just say everything that could possibly go wrong did.
On the bright side though we saw DOLPHINS!!! Once again these beautiful creatures jumped along side us and lifted our spirits. It always seems that they come at the perfect time. We also had beautiful weather and somewhat perfect seas. We made it to Spain at about 8:00pm and docked the boat without too much of a hassle.
Spain is gorgeous and today Dads gonna dive the propeller and see whats happening with that fishing line.
