Leaving enjoyable Isabela in the Galapagos Islands
Bye bye Isabela and the Cerro Azul volcano
Becalmed at night, floating west at a little over 1 knot
One of the many sunrises, this one in flat seas
Some of our stocked-up vegetables; soon ready to be eaten
All bundled up after the night watch; the comfy chair was our saving grace!
Trophies after a night of sailing: flying fish and squid
Morning view of Irie's trampoline (after a rough night): a bunch of suicidal flying fish
Oh oh... The bananas all turning yellow already!
The only fish we caught: a small mahi mahi (dorado) - we did lose all our lures later
On one of the quieter and early days: Mark making spinach flat bread
Colorful sunset, behind a relatively flat horizon. We saw many sunsets on the trip, sometimes the same one multiple times, when rising and falling with the waves!
This acrobatic squid made it all the way onto the mainsail!
Rough seas, big swell - it is hard to do justice to the sea conditions in a picture
Rigged up cockpit cushions to keep the cockpit relatively dry from crashing waves
Our shower system: one sun shower filled with seawater, the other with fresh; both warmed by the sun
The best chocolate chip cookies in the world, with dark Belgian chocolate
One of the rainbows near a far away squall
On days with little wind, we fly our spinnaker - red, white and blue!
Frontal system ahead; we're not sure what is to happen when we go through...
Surrounded by one of the squalls of the weather front - our sails are reefed and we fly
Arriving at the Gambier Islands, during the crappiest weather they have had in a while!
The perfect welcome by our friends Birgit and Christian from SV Pitufa: a basket with local goodies!
