Day 5: Transatlantic passage

Atlantic Ocean---The watch last night was hard and I'm exhausted. The 150 sail kept backing (wind gets behind it from the wrong direction) and a oncoming wave would turn the boat. The moon is not out so it is really dark. The Captain woke and came up to inspect once. I pulled to starboard many times but the sound of the sail snapping makes me cringe.  Plus, I woke up at 4:30am and couldn't fall back asleep.

During the day I took photos of my napkin art and finished my potpourri project so it was a day of art work.  Wrote Impressions of Cape Verde and loaded new photos. The Captain did some problem solving on his newest obsession: the water generator, and then he made "Insatiable Soup" for dinner and it was great. Sunset was gorgeous.

Mark and I are taking turns on the dinner dishes which is great. Having him aboard to help with night watches makes a huge difference then when it was only The Captain and me.

Video Dairy Day 5: "Hi, this is Edee Dalke on Sailing Yacht Juno it is day 5 of our transatlantic passage to Barbados which is also December 3, 2010. I also just got off my morning watch. I watched from 5 in the morning until 7. We have three adults aboard and it's split up with two hour watches twice a night which gives me 4 hours sleep in between. But the good news is, I get to watch the sun rise every morning, so that's cool."

So where is the recipe for "insatiable soup?" The recipe for oh boy, beans is now a favorite of mine, not so much umpty.
