Still at sea

Well, this trip is really becoming longer than we first thought, light or no wind the last two days has made a mark. We have motored a few hours in the morning yesterday and today, just to feel that we are actually going somewhere and to charge batteries. This ocean without any wind is like a ever changing landscape of ridges and valleys, the mighty Pacific swell just comes rolling by and since it is so long and gentle you only notice it if you look towards the horizon. This is also an area with a lot of humpback whales that comes up to the Tonga region to have their calves, H�kan saw one this morning. Right now the wind is back, and we are sailing along in over 6 knots and we have less then 200 nm to Niue.

Take care,

Fredrik,

Intressant att följa era äventyr, fina bilder från Niue (aldrig hört talas om platsen förut) och dess omgivningar. "Sunset in Bora Bora" fick reslustan att vakna till liv.
Uppskattar att Håkan skriver om öarnas kultur och historia, gör läsningen extra intressant. Fredde, skriv gärna en rad, har tappat bort din mailadress. hälsningar jenny
