Marquesas Islands Ahead
Today is Sunday Margaret forgot to make Sunday breakfast, well everyday seams to be a Sunday on the boat, the calendar lost its meanings on the passage, only the remaining mileages ahead of us counts. We have 640 nautical miles ahead of us to reach the Marquesas Islands. Apparently they are spectacular, those are high volcanicly formed islands, their sharp outlines are clearly visible from about 20nm.
I started envisioning our arrival. What would give me the highest pleasure when we get there, stepping on terra firma and being mesmerized by the beauty of the islands or finally shaving off my long beard, would give me the ultimate arrival pleasure. I made an announcement the night before we left Galápagos that I skip shaving until we get the Marquesas Islands. That was an easy promise, now I’m paying for it.
