From a Distance

Sunrise on our final day at sea
Land Ahoy at 3.45pm GMT 09 January 2012

From a distance ........... we can see Barbados.  We have 23 miles to run to the bottom of the island so will arrive in daylight.
The last 24 hours have been lovely, still the roll and lurching around, but we are so used to it now.  But the skies have been clear and we enjoyed a magical final night with an almost full moon and many stars.  

We even spotted a huge turtle about an hour ago, morale is very very high.  As I type I am hearing the first transmission on the VHF radio for about 12 days, there is life out there!!!  

Carlisle Bay anchorage at Bridgetown, Barbados here we come ...............
