Have just run an excited (if not slightly spatially restriicted) lap of celebration about the sundeck in honour of our 30 days out here. We’ll crack open the bottle of Port tomorrow and make a little offering to Neptune – would have done so today but made my very own little offering whike eating breakfast. I’m not sure if the porridgey mix Mum and I made up and vaccuum packed way back in January has gone rancid or if I ate too many wine gums as an entrée. Guess we’ll see at breakfast tomorrow!
You’ll see from the tracker that we’ve added another lovely bit of West (53 nm in the lasr 24 hrs!)to the picture today, well in the 100th degree of longitude. We should cross the magic line into 99degrees sometime tomorrow.
In celebration of our 1 month milestone I opened two letters from Mum, one of which told me to make sure I had enough rest and sleep. Dutifully, I obeyed and had a delicious midday snooze – I used to love these in my student days! Other celebratory activities included the following:
– A scrumptious lamb hotpot from ‘Look What We Found’. These tasty delights are usually the Sunday lunch highlight amid my week of dehydrated horrors but I have a few extra for special days too. Only wish I’d brought more along!
– Laundry. Never has an Outey been so happy at cleaning her clothes. While hair may condition itself if you leave it long enough (saltwater dumps, dinner & suncream mean this doesn’t apply to me), my clothes do not. I left a soggy pile in the cabin corner for ten days and they didn’t smell any sweeter!
-30 day boogie. The great thing about being toute seule out here is you can boogie like a mad thing on deck to cheesy music and no one can see you.
And with that I shall cease my happy ramblings and head bedwards for some crazy dreaming. Is it just me or does everyone have bizzarre dreams at sea?! That said my good friend Siena said she’d been dreaming of whales which were actually helicopters recently, so maybe I’m not heading the Weird Dreams Leaderboard yet!

-Joee! Think of our Atlantic adventures lots-that star chart was N hemisphere though.
-Rosie – Bet I could beat the 3 packet record, only I have to try and make sure I have something left for the last thousand miles! Are you in still in HK?
