Eat, Sleep, Wave Repeat

... a low pressure system for cool air from the north and south to move towards the equator. The spin of the planet then does the rest so that the wind travels towards the west near the equator. Basically it means that all we had to do was put up the sails and wait.

Looking back now the days all seem to blur into one another. The third and fourth day I got seasick, but other than that each day seemed to fade into the next. I would wake in to morning, make breakfast, ...

After the cooking class, we were allowed to invite our spouses to come to the classroom to taste the food.

We came back to the pier around 3:30. I shopped around some more. I wanted to get a wooden carved oar, for about $100. It was beautiful! But I did not get it because I worried about how to get it home .... I think I regret not getting it, because we probably would not come back to this ...
