Day 95 - Keeping up the pressure!

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

We’re really so pleased to be making such fast progress all spirits are high on Flying Ferkins.¬† The mileage not as good today as we were caught in a current that tried to send us south, but we’re back on track and we are still ahead of Southern Cross which is the main thing.

No we can’t smell food on land yet! But the closer we get to land the more bird life is appearing¬† - I believe there are lots of birds on Mauritius - an Albatross would be good to see -¬† so if we get time we could do a bit of twitching!!

We both keep thinking of all the things we need bought out to Mauritius - it’s struck us how little we’ve got on board especially clothes!

Thank you again to everyone who has given so generously to Orchid, we are amazed at the total - nearly ¬£5,000 that’s fantastic.¬† Looking forward to thanking everyone personally for all the amazing support we’re getting it really has helped to keep us going.
