|Sitting on the boom to weight the boat|
Anchor watches required. Came aground AGAIN Today! Had to climb the boom with Sally and Xavi to weight down one side of the boat as we tried to dislodge ourselves. This was becoming a habit.
After a lovely evening of wine and steak I went to bed with an episode of breaking bad (series 3 episode 10). It had been a great day of sailing and sunshine! This place really is magical with a bit of sunlight on it! The weather had broken for a brief spell and we made the most of our respite, sitting on deck, taking in the unbelievable scenery and watching out for Whales. We met a family of Orcas as well as the now common sightings of humpbacks.

We were safe from this particular ice berg but there could be more and they move quickly so we will have to be aware tonight. Be aware and be ready! I placed my wooly socks in a convenient location right next to my life jacket and go pro and went back to bed to finish episode 10 of breaking bad!
The crossing over towards Deception Island has been rough. I also believe the chances of us getting
from Enterprise Island to Deception Island in one day, as planned, was very slim. It seems to me it was a bad plan in the first place. Now we are sailing through unchartered waters, trying to find a safe place to moor for the night before dark sets in agan. We are sailing along the side of Trinity Island at the moment and keeping a close eye on the depth as we try to find some shelter. We have been sailing since 9am this morning and it is now 7.30pm. We are no more than half way to Deception! We would have had to double our speed to be in with a chance of sticking to the plan and the chances of that were pretty damn slim!

It has been another wet and miserable day. My patience is waring thin and there is no space for privacy. I will be glad to get off the boat at this stage!
