Untied the lines and on my way

Finally, all the to-do things are done and I am on my way. Isabell is loaded with food and water for a long trip. The sailing is slow, the weather fantastic, and not too many people are out sailing in the Stockholm Archipelago.

Today, I saw three seagulls sitting on the water. All of a sudden, a seal came up out of the deep, and took one of the gulls. The water colored red with blood and the seal disappeared. Two gulls left, that did not seem to realize what just happened. I did not know seals eat birds.

Otherwise, life is slow, and easy. Tropical heat and sunshine. It feels good to be out here. I will try and keep you posted on progress.
