Day 35 – That’s ocean rowing!

I am writing this blog in a small and smelly cabin on Nat’s mobile phone as our iPad is having a few issues. I’m trying to rewrite the blog post about night shifts which I spent ages typing on the iPad while eating porridge with the other hand. However I keep getting disturbed by climbing out on deck to see a pod of whales which are passing the boat. They are massive and seem very interested in Doris as they keep coming really close to say hello. That’s ocean rowing for you! We are still finally making good progress in the right direction and Hawaii is getting closer by the day. We’ll keep you posted on the wildlife, iPad and weather situation and stay posted for the night shift blog coming soon.
