POST RACE 2 (Jess Baker)

We saw a HUUUMMMMPPBAAACCCKKK!!! About 100 metres out to sea we saw a spout hole...70m....50m...30m...20m....(s)he's curious, (s)he's coming towards us. WAHOO! It was absolutely awesome watching it surface and submerge again and again so close to the boat. It's white pectoral fins gave rise to a beautiful turquoise colour under the water and hinted in excitement where it was to surface next. Soo cool. That was the highlight of yesterday, between the extended napping (my gosh, I would hate to have chronic fatigue syndrome!) and (too much!) glorious food. Today we sail past Cape Horn, lots of interesting talks, and tonight the awards banquet. Then one day in Ushuaia before our return flight. Starting to think of returning home now; sooo excited to see Kitty. It has definitely been a great break, haven;t thought about work once...even if I have tried. Dec and Jan are designated catch-up with friends month! Mum are you free your Thurs morn for a chat? P we are inviting ourselves over for dinner!! And Di, you said it, you are now committed to an extensive slideshow! Bronwyn, exciting to hear that you are following. Love to you all. Jess X
