Sailing Around The World

Day 12 Galapagos to Marquesas Islands 5/12/13

Well another exciting day at sea! The wind is up to 25 knots and the waves are starting to get 10 feet high. I had a great day of being bounced around Dragonsbane as we went up the wave and down the wave at sometimes 20 degrees or 30 weeeeeeee! But I guess the one thing that I noticed more then anything was the great deal we got on purple and yellow onions. We bought them at the Galapagos fresh market at a very cheap price so we bought a lot. Now after being out in the open ocean for 12 days I am beginning to be overwhelmed by our hanging basket of onions. There is nothing better the smell of old onions swing around in our main cabin. Last, most of our bread has a great freezer taste and the only way I can eat the bread is by toasting it on the stove. I have burnt my hands twice now, but it makes my SPAM sandwiches taste much better. O yeah, to day Adam was baptized by the Pacific Ocean when a big wave came over the stern and soaked him. All I heard was DAM IT, and I looked up laughing. Welcome to the club Adam!

FYI don’t buy a lot of onions when crossing an ocean! Buy MORE BEEEEER!
