ProjectPacific: Day 23


Today was the day I bet we would get to Hawaii.  Judging by the fact that we can’t even see it yet, I would say I was a little off.  However, we have less than 300nm left so we are estimating arriving Thursday morning!  Farrell is having trouble sleeping during the day now as he is too excited!  Maybe it’s the fact that Christine will be there to greet us.  He told me that in their 32 years of marriage that this is one of their longest periods without seeing each other.  Christine will be joining us sailing for a month in Hawaii.  The closer we get, the more birds we see, which is always a good indication.  Perhaps that means more fish too?  Although I’m not holding my breath for fish tacos tonight.

After hiding away from the squalls this morning we are all out on the deck enjoying the sun and crossing our finger that this wind keeps up!

Christine’s note:  My suitcase is packed and I am liking how close they are getting to land.  I am also breathing easier watching Hurricane Celia’s predicted path and intensity which doesn’t look much now!  The image below is next Saturday – much better.
