News from Elsa! She just sent this tweet:
and a longer email:
I was meaning to write a longer message and blog, but writing is still making me feel sick, so putting it off for a few more days. Have attached photo though. Promise proper blogs soon.
Have seen dolphins, humpback whales, a shark ( from a distance), and albatrosses. Amazing. Whales are so big!
Creeping west – every night on sea anchor (bit of a faff as have to get rudder in and everything tied down etc, but getting more efficient), waves huge and really loud. Feeling challenged by weather, but always knew first first weeks would be especially hard. I look forward to rowing with the wind at some point, rather than against it. Big waves are both terrifying and exciting – like a theme park with no rules and no other people.
Please pass on my thanks for lovely messages – apologies I’m not replying but they mean a lot.
Photo not the best, but something I’d have liked to see in past. My nighttime view inside my cabin. Just to the left I’m making water into my Ortlieb. GPS etc on right. My legs in sleeping bag in middle.
