Today has been sailing wise pretty boring as there has been no wind, but on the other hand we have had time to celebrate Marens 37th birthday!
In Norway there is a song about «maybe the king will arrive to the party» and so on.. Maren was singing that song yesterday and although our own king unfortunately could not show, another majesty did. You were all invited by the way but last time we saw other people (or at least a ship) was on our second night after leaving Oahu. This is a pretty isolated place to have a birthday, about 1300 NM to San Francisco, 1100 NM to Honolulu and the same to the closest of the Aleutian Islands to the north west, so we do understand that it was hard to get here. So, who showed up here was the king of the sky – an Albatross. We have never seen this fantastic bird (airplane) other than on television before and he did a fly-by three times with about a half hour in between. We are saving that photo + some more facts about the bird for tomorrow.
Karl Otto made some fantastic Cinnamon rolls and they were served on the birthday present – freediving fins.
It was taco lunch today but after the cake we are not sure if it is room for dinner.
Maren says thanks for all birthday wishes and will probably not celebrate this isolated.. again!
