Today passed in a bit of a daze. I had a school of dolphins frolic around the boat for several minutes, but there was no way I could make it below to get the camera; by the time I'd done that at my geriatric pace they would have been long gone. So I just watched them jump to port and starboard and soon they were gone and I was alone again. I did see a faint bump on the horizon which was a freighter, and also had a couple of AIS signals, none of which came close enough to be visible to the eye.
In other circumstances today would have been awesome sailing. The seas were flat, I was close hauled with an apparent wind of 15 knots and doing over 7-8 knots with the boat hardly heeled over.
Only one more day to go before landfall.
