Pacific Ocean 48 11'.450N, 125 07'.725W (Leigh)

12:30 PM Monday,
We left Neah Bay as planned at 5:30AM. Some fog but relatively good visibility. Motored just past Cape Flattery, raised the main sail and motor sailed for another hour to get through the steepest swell. Multi tasking is good so we made some water while we were motoring. Shut the motor off about 8AM and we're sailing along in calm water with a small swell just to let us know we're really on the ocean. Made radio contact with Kinship. They're just approaching California and have made great time in the last 2 days. Had lunch and have been trying to keep to our watch schedule so Peter is in bed now. I think I picked the wrong watches - who doesn't want a nap after lunch! Missing our friends in Seattle but the weather is good and we're looking forward to swimming in the warm southern California waters.
