We’re currently tracking along the Gulf Stream and plan to cross late tonight into tomorrow morning.
Conditions are warm but wet – rain, rain go away. Too, the sea state is confused and so we’ve been rolling and yawing for some time. Sleep is frustrated in these conditions and we’re all ready for the calm seas that are forecast to arrive tomorrow afternoon. Perhaps we’ll even take a short break and go for a swim.
Not much else to report today, so we’ll keep this brief.
- Spoke to the Norwegian cruise ship Breakaway. This is interesting because it is the second time Blue Moon has crossed paths and had to communicate with them this year. Back in April they signaled us that they where a Pilot Boat in the fog — four short blasts from the horn. My best guess is that they had someone on a tour of the bridge that wanted to blow the horn. Of course they denied blowing it at the time… maybe we all just heard a mermaid playing a joke. :-P
