Day 3 at sea. Its still taking some getting used to looking out the ships window and not see the familar sights of the harbor. Our first full day out at sea was calm and very nice. A pleasent breeze cooled the warm air and there were no clouds in the sky. The bow was opened for the first time, its closed when we are at dock due to the dangers of the mooring lines, and we spent the day sunning ourselves. Dolphins swam in our bow wake and schools of flying fish entertained us all. A very pleasent day.
Woke up on Sunday to a different feeling and noise. My cabin was literally jumping and I could hear a loud roaring. The wind had picked up during the night the farther north we went and the ocean is a little rough now, full of white caps.
The sunsets have been amazing! The sky has been clear during the day, no clouds anywhere, until around sunset when they gather at the horizon. They don't really obstruct our view of the sun, but they compliment the sun with their rainbow of colors. Then the real show begins, the stars come out. If you've ever been somewhere were there are no lights and saw the sky in all its glory, imagine that and then multiply that by 100. I've seen whole constellations, like Orion, Pegasus, Gemini. They stand out so brightly here that I wonder how come I was never able to pick them out before.
We are slightly behind schedule, so we've been told this morning. Not sure when we'll get into Tenerife, either sometime late on Thursday or first thing on Friday. So this is our half way point.
