The weather between the mainland and Hawai’i is stabilizing, Jimena is still a major hurricane, but is heading away from waters where we will be, and he has no friends close on his heels. So…tomorrow is our departure day. We celebrated with a feast for dinner out tonight.
The boat is ready, we will take on fuel and water in the morning, and then be on our way before noon.
Today was busy with some last minute projects, and provisioning. The whale was back in the marina again today for a few minutes for our daily entertainment.
Overall, I think coming to Monterey was a great call. Besides avoiding weather we really didn’t want to be in, the chance to make a few last minute adjustments was very helpful.
You’ll see more of our posts, more or less daily, as we cross the ocean. Here’s hoping for an uneventful trip!
So happy for you Bill! May the appropriate forces be with you!
Thanks for letting us tag along!
Looking forward to your updates! Bon voyage!
