The projects are done, the tanks are full, and we are ready to set off for the Galapagos! We are only waiting for our paperwork to arrive, and a good high tide to get out over the sand bar. The crew is ready, and anxious to set off for some new adventures. We have really loved the country of Ecuador and would not hesitate to return someday.
The Galapagos islands are about 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, it should take us 6-8 days to get there. It will depend on the winds and currents. Right now, it looks like conditions will be favorable. We just hope that the conditions hold for the next week while we wait to leave. In the meantime there are provisions to procur, school to teach, wood that needs oiling, rugs to wash, engines to fine tune... the list is never ending. We will be busy right up until we leave and then we have plenty to do while we are underway also.
