Day 58 - Having a Whale of time!

Monday, June 15th, 2009

Hello it’s me¬† it’s now day 58 -¬† as you can see from tracker we are¬† making good progress west now finally after our week of sitting around and the ocean has definitely come alive, we saw our first whale yesterday don’t ask me what species it was but it was huge, it came up to the surface about 50m from the hatch of the stern cabin and blew it’s¬† air and water out and dived back down again which was pretty awesome.¬† The reason we are seeing¬† more life at the moment has¬† something to do with the ridge we are on, we have a 500m depth at the moment compared of the normal¬† 5000¬† which we have been on, which gives some idea of why we are having a lot of wildlife hanging around the boat at the moment.¬† We have been going well for the last four days and it is looking good for the rest of the week and hopefully we will be getting to the¬† halfway by the weekend¬† -¬† this is the plan!!

Not a lot else to report so Andrew over and out.
