Starting off on the Pacific

We left Panama two days ago and are heading to the Galapagos Islands. Our first sailing experience on the Pacific has been peaceful. Light winds, glassine seas, little swell have been our conditions so far. Unfortunately, we have been unable to sail much and have had to keep our motors running. We'll see how long our fuel holds out. The calm seas have been great for mammal watching. We have seen many pods of various dolphins from a distance. Their antics have kept us entertained with their high jumps into the air. I've never seen dolphins in the Atlantic jump like that, but the Atlantic dolphins would often play in our bow wake but these guys have kept their distance. We think we saw some whales flapping their fins in the air but it was too far away to be sure.

Today we had chicken curry using the curry paste I just bought. Yum. I think we'll have curry roti for lunch.

There is a bird flying around me. He's very tired and desperately wants to land on the boat but won't for some reason. Poor little guy.
