Looks like I am in for a sunny day today. So lots of water made, batteries charged, and iPods to the ready. Only problem is still this wind!
The wind is now coming from the south making it firstly slow progress, and secondly pushing me northwards, which is the opposite to what I have been trying to achieve over the past two weeks. I was quite impressed with my almost perfect circle I created whilst on para anchor though!
I start off making reasonable progress against the wind, but as the wind strength increased throughout the day it became more difficult to row against it. Going northwards is not ideal but at least I am making forward progress. On para anchor I would not be making any headway at all.
So the day really consisted of nice sun, good tunes but slow going. Monday night should be when the winds start to turn so hopefully if I keep pushing on I will be in a good position to start picking up speed again.
I have been getting word that there is so much support out there, especially changes people are making to help reduce single use plastics. I can’t thank you enough, it really makes all this worth while. I have been hearing of community beach cleans, changes to shopping habits and so much great work happening. I am so honoured that what I am doing really is making a difference.
Today I saw a green plastic bottle float past, unfortunately too far to grab it. I thought to myself that I am in a spot on earth where very few humans have ever been and yet we have managed to pollute it. The changes we are all making all add to the bigger picture to make the planet a better place for us all.
Thank you again for getting behind me.
