Today's update is from Maggie:
WE"RE ALMOST THERE!!! :D We only have like 170 more miles to go!! I can't wait to stop moving!! We've been going pretty fast these past few days and so we think if we can keep this speed (around 6.5 knots) we will be there sometime Saturday night!!
We were trying to think of ways to explain how it feels...the closest we came to explaining it....I think it feels like you are on a hammock for 2 weeks straight and you can't get off! Which is funny cuz I usually never spend like more than 20 minutes on one....Now I might be scared to ever get on another one ever again hahaha xD
So...we're all super excited to finally get there. I think we're planning on making Cinnamon rolls for breakfast the morning after we get there :) We'll finally feel up to eating a big breakfast again.
We caught another fish....a Mahi, it wasn't as big as the Blue Marlin but still we made dad throw it back in after we took a picture....we. just. cant. handle. anymore. FISH!!
We saw a boat today....A tanker ship. The first boat we've seen in over 10 days....that was our most exciting moment, hahaha, we all gathered outside to see it...we almost called them on the VHF just to hear their voices...but that might sound a little desperate, so we didn't.
Some other highlights from the last few days was Levi and Emma had a lemon eating/sour face contest (Emma won) and we figured out a way to shoot clothespins across the cockpit using bungy cords (Emma won that too)
So that's it......the next email will be when we make landfall!
