and... he's off! again!



Those of you who've read this blog for a while may remember that my wild and crazy husband did a sailboat race across the Pacific a couple of years ago... by himself on a 30-foot boat.  Well, he's doing it again, and it started today.  I've basically been a sailing widow for the last couple of months while he's upgraded a few things, tinkered, fiddled, obsessed, and so on -- but he was pretty relaxed this morning and was first over the starting line for his division -- a good omen even if there are 2,122 miles to the end!

Aside from the crowd of well-wishers at the yacht club, there was this solitary, algae-covered jellyfish...  bizarre and interesting to watch.

Wow! That's pretty interesting! How long do you estimate it will take him? Do you worry at all?

He seems determined. I hope he has a wonderful sail. Have you decided to meet him at the finish?
