August 23, 2007

Yesterday, I heard a puff to my right.  Two huge creatures, with fins on their backs and shiny, round black bodies came to the surface at the same time.

I stopped rowing and watched.  I was going to identify these animals.  There were white spots on their sides, which meant they were orcas.  This was a group of about 10.  A group of orcas is called a pod.

I have been at sea for 45 days and I still haven’t caught a fish.  I did eat one of the flying fish that landed on my boat, though.

Cleaning the fish was not hard, but it had more bones than meat.  I added the meat into my eggs.

Today was a very hot and humid day. My reward came at the end of the day.  It was a huge rainbow.
