Early this morning, as forecast, the wind went away. We have been motoring for several hours and it looks like that will continue for a bit more. Other than a few small and mild rain squalls, nothing interesting to report on weather. A few flying fish cover the recent wildlife sightings.
Last night we were past in the dark by Adele, a 180 foot (!) sailboat. Like us she is headed for Fort Lauderdale. Hopefully we get a look at her there.
With calmer seas, and easier sailing, we put out some fishing lines. Hopefully that will be productive.
