During our Gulf Stream crossing Sue spotted a whale frolicking on the surface. Thankfully the whale stayed clear of us and we steered away from the whale.
Neat to see. These are not the best pictures but if you look hard you can see the spout.in the center.
Note the difference between the compass heading of 120 degrees and the course over ground on the chart plotter which says 84 degrees. This is because the gulf stream is running north so fast. We pointed the boat east southeast and end up going almost due east.
Our speed over ground averaged a bit over 6 knots.
Sunset looking west from Bimini. We left Dinner Key in Florida at 0330 and arrived at Blue Water Resort Marina at 1300. Great crossing with a buddy boat called Our Log. We were able to motor sail for most of the trip.
Below is a picture of the sunrise as headed East from Key Biscayne.
