Lat: 12° 42.8' N
As wind and seas begin to subside a bit, we had some sightings of spotters, spinners, and sei whales. All are still keeping their elusive distance.
Had a big ol' tangled mess with the wire tonight, so no net tows. Josh worked diligently to work the kinks out, no pun intended, but we still ended up getting done at our usual time. I'm still keeping the faith that one of these nights we'll be able to catch the movie.
Eating! Yes, I'm doing plenty of that, and there's no shortage of chocolate thankfully! The mess is just 2 doors down, the stewards are always concocting another irresistible, delectable something, and it breaks up the pattern of checking emails, catching up on the daily news - we seem so far away from the madding world!, reading a book, and being in the gym.
