Day 20 - 1/2 Way to Sitka

Today is May 27, our 20th day at sea, and we're 1/2 way to Sitka Alaska!!
Aboard the good ship Renova, we'll take that as an excuse for a party. A
chocolate party, that is!! Before leaving Majuro, we bought each other
little gift packages that we could open for our 1/2 way point. Majuro isn't
exactly a shopping meca, and it wasn't surprising that when we each opened
our gifts, we were treated to chocolates! Needless to say, it was a good
day, and the snack cupboard has been refilled!

We rounded out the celebrations by having hot, fresh water sink baths,
changing the sheets on the bunk, and eating the last of our frozen chicken.
I know, I can see it now. You're shaking your head at our crazy party animal
antics. Ok ok. We'll calm down.

Let's hope we do the next 1000 miles in less than 11 days. Anyone care to
venture a guess on our Sitka arrival date?

Winds have rotated around in the last few days, coming from the South.
Sometimes even South west. Crazy, but good. We're now heading directly
east. This helps us make some good miles before moving north to colder
latitudes. But, more importantly, it keeps us below the nasty looking low
pressure systems that are roving around to the north of us. We'd much prefer
to stay on the edge of the high, if possible.

Hang in there! Chocolate is great for the soul! Put down Don Quiote (sp?) and write your own book! Jake says hi and he misses you! Take care.
