We have two stowaway passenger on board 🙂

Two herons (they look like, white feather, yellow beak, long neck, long leg)
seems in couple, they build a nest in the furled flying jib

Even in the middle of the Atlantic we can observe many birds
Sparrows, swallows, a seagull two days ago
those two were hunted by a kind of seahawk this afternoon
then found refuge on Tres Hombres

So much life at sea
a week ago we saw an unidentified group of 4 or 5 whales
swimming to east
Two day ago we observed a humpback whales jumping

gently sailing down the trade winds
looking the sea, the birds, the flying fishs
that how we spend our days on Tres Hombres
busy, busy, busy
At night we counting the shooting stars
busy, busy, busy
