My new best friends cannot possibly overstay their welcome. I don’t know where all the smaller species have gone but these seem to definitely rule the skies around here.

When they are diving down into the troughs of the swell, the look all business. Wings cambered, heads down, exploratory glances left and right whatever it is they are looking for probably doesn’t stand a chance if anywhere in range.

They are comfortable around the boat making me think they are no strangers to different vessels. Our speed downwind seems to match their pace downwind. With the wind at 8-10 knots at 170 apparent, we are almost dead down wind matching their search patterns and rest periods. With conditions as they are, the only time they need to flap their wings is to take off.

I will miss them in the coming days when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

    That looks about right. When it’s hot out in the ocean, its foggy and wet on the Wet Coast. That means you’re on the right track, heading the right direction. Finally. Woohoo.
