I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe in these very trying times. Today is my birthday (April 15) and I feel so blessed that thus far, our family has not been seriously impacted by the COVID -19 virus. I say "seriously impacted" a little tongue in cheek as we have many family members, in both the UK and USA that work in the healthcare field, and are dealing daily with patients and the very worrying risk of bringing something home. My hat goes off to all healthcare workers that are continuing on a daily basis to take care of sick patients and help us through this time.

So, we have been spending a few days on the boat, then returning home to replenish supplies, then we head out again. The weather for the most part has been exceptionally good, with daytime temperatures in the high 70s to low 80s and 60s at night.

We were happy to be joined for a few days by our friend and long-time crew-member Patrick. He is a dentist and obviously his practice is currently closed - so he joinud us for some much needed outdoor recreation.
