We got up fairly early and set sail – or more accurately, turned on the engine since the wind was so light.
During our travels to Anil Pass (south pass of Namu), we found a big bird pile and caught a baby yellowfin tuna.
Throughout the trip, Quincy and I sang songs. It's been a long time since I sang "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," "The Itsy Bitsy Spider," "Old McDonald," etc. We even made up our own songs about the trip and all the memories we've made so far.
We arrived to Anil Pass around 4:40 PM. Quincy did not get sick at all on his first open ocean passage. Yay! We spent a while reading and hanging out, then around 6 PM, TC, Quincy, and I started exercising and doing yoga. We did pushups, lunges, jumping jacks, arm weights, side planks, tree pose, downward dog, and more. Quincy even tried to do the splits. We also tried to get some jumping pictures as the sun set behind us.
I am still in awe of the beauty around us. As the sun set, the sky behind Anil Island was patterned with pink and blue light. The almost full moon started to rise behind the island, which made for an even more wonderful sight.
