I am writing this message from the ocean.

Before I left, a kind fisherman named Roger stopped by my boat.  Roger built his boat.  It is called Sealoom.  He gave me some fishing hooks for salmon.  He also showed me a special way to tie the fishing line.  He said, “You will succeed.  You have a good heart.”

Later that night, I had dinner at the campsite of Ethan and Jutta.  Ethan and I had met at the place where my boat is tied. He offered me a pasta dinner before I took off.

I set my alarm for 4 a.m. and went to sleep.

When I woke up on Tuesday, I checked the weather again.  This was the break I had been waiting for.  So I untied my boat and started rowing at 6:30 a.m.  Fishing boats raced by, creating waves.  From time to time, one would slow down and ask where I was going.  I said “Australia” and they cheered me on.
