Otherwise, nothing of any real interest happened all day. The bulk of the day was spent on the Alligator-Pungo Canal, which is very long, very straight and very boring, with only a nine-degree bend in the middle for entertainment.
I did manage to get the early start I was hoping for the day before, so I was securely anchored just as the day got unbearably hot. It was the perfect excuse for a dip in the pool to cool off.
[Maryanne]Kyle was so far away from anything there was not even a phone signal. Luckily he was able to keep in touch with me using the last of our satellite phone minutes we'd purchased for the off shore passage and weather reports. Technology is amazing eh? He's also terribly frustrated not to be sailing - these are great open waters and he is having to use the motor until we can be sure the Bow Crossbeam is fixed. He's gritting his teeth and bearing it, and kicking himself about it too.
