We ended up having pork stir fry, which was delicious. Our fruits and vegetables have held up pretty well; however, it is definitely warming up, which means everything will ripen faster.
Now the really strange thing. When Steve was cleaning the first fish on the side deck, he noticed a cargo net with a few items in it floating by the boat. Next came a boot. Now Steve swears that he saw some of the lower leg bone sticking out of the boot. I glanced at the boot but didn't watch it go by.
Today is more overcast again. We are making good time and have been in the trade winds for several days now, so we have been lucky in picking our route so far. We are 990 miles out of Cabo and have been sailing with just the poled-out jib or wing-on-wing. Everything has settled down, and we are getting used to working with the motion of the boat. I have bruises on bruises in some places. Some things such as cooking are still a challenge. We are also sleeping a little better and trying to rest during the day as well.
Keep your fingers crossed for another Dorado!
