Day 5: Rainy night

When the birds flew off yesterday they left behind quite a little mess on the bow. Someone made an offhanded comment about needing a little rain to rinse it and all the salt off the decks. Well, after a nice sunny day we got that “wish.” It started raining last night and hasn’t stopped yet. And with the rain came some uncomfortable seas but little wind so we were forced again to motor throughout the night. We’re finally getting wind today and are sailing on a nice beam reach for now. The seas are starting to calm a bit and we’re hoping this incessant rain will leave us soon. Crew spirits are waning but still fairly high, nothing some sunshine won’t cure.
