DAY 38 - 100 miles to go

We're crossing the North Pacific, our passage almost complete.
Jacob says we're 'savage'; we say, were merely freaks.

The accomplishment is huge, for both me and John,
4000 miles is epic, 6 weeks at sea is LONG.

Soon we'll be in Sitka, 100 miles to go,
Familiar shores await us, we just have to get through this low.

Now we scan the horizon, anxious that there will be
Gorgeous, snow-capped mountains, rising from this massive sea.

We're keen to stretch our legs, walk up and down the street,
Feast on a great meal, enjoy an undisturbed sleep.

Friends and family have sent emails, sustaining us through it all,
Now we're homeward bound, we'll see you in the fall!
