We have a relaxing 3 days in PD. The girls have had a good couple of days in Malacca. The highlight being the discovery of the Mock Wok. A vego restaurant which has all the local dishes but with no meat but a "mock" version of it. YUM. They mall trawled and did the many museums in town and came back bearing fruit and tofu and black printer cartridge( it had dried out). I didn't hear them arrive back last night but i knew they were here when i opened the fridge to see that the tofu fairy had visited.
Anyway we are under way to the Water Islands about 39nm today. It is pretty windless out here. Although, we did manage to put the jib up for about an hour. No traffic out here except the occasional fishing boat and the large ship in the haze on the horizon. I am convinced Mike has heat stroke as he announced this morning that is is quite looking forward to hitting the Singapore Straits. He will enjoy the metal stimulation of navigating through the shipping lanes. I am starting him on some Sudoku's now to get the brain in shape. MAD.
Big Happy Birthday to our friend Harry on Rhiannon who is currently on a 30 days passage from St Helena (off West Coast of Africa) to Barbados. It was his birthday yesterday. I think it was one of those significant milestone birthdays as well.
