I am Josh, the late crew member (aka the bilge boy) and I have been assigned by Kayleen to write a guest blog. I have been having a great time on Fenwick Light! We are living the dream out here in the middle of the Pacific. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves of that when we are attempting to fix the head stay ruler while taking waves over the bow, when we find water dripping onto our bunks or when we discover we have some small Hawaiian stowaways hitching a ride to Canada (see blog Day 2.7). It is all a part of this epic adventure. Best part? It’s not over yet!
Finally they are reporting some wind, but we are wondering how much of a low is developing near them (too much wind?) and that shifty high has shifted higher up and nearer to Vancouver Island (along with a huge wind system from the NW that will be along Vancouver Island’s west coast.) As usual the home fronts are watching carefully … trying not to count down the days … but ….
and a few days from now … with their current position marked.
