On the Road Again

Nani left Horta about 6:30 this morning EST so I can now resume my favorite summer activity of tracking them on the internet. I Skyped briefly with Alex yesterday but the noise in Peter's Cafe  was too loud for any real conversation. I can report though that Alex looked very happy and relaxed, and ready for the next leg of the journey. Did I mention he sounded happy? I think the beer at Peter's was good and plentiful.

Aside from having plenty of time to spend in Cafe Sport, they re-provisioned (Alex said the grocery store was fantastic!) re-did the Spartite to the masts since they were creaking a bit on the first part of the trip and finished getting Nani ship shape for the rest of the journey. Cheryl arrived on Sunday to spend a week with Alan exploring the Azores and she brought with her spare macerator pump, so I'm assuming they may actually have a working head too! 
The forecast is calling for very little wind, so they could be motoring a good bit of the way.

Bob sent this picture of Nani  at port, and I must say she looks right at home!

Meanwhile, back at the cottage, we are all about badminton and stick and rock baseball on the beach.
