Pos: here
Loc: Isla Wollaston
Acc: Navy Station
Dist: 0 km

A typical slow rest day! The wind was howling around the station, but not as strong as at Cape Horn station today, where they measured a record of 138 knots!

I was sleeping in late like the whole family (though Christian was on the work radio around 5 am for a while dealing with an unregistered ship in Chilean waters or such), feeling my sore muscles. Breakfast was at 12.30, lunch around 5pm, dinner at 9 pm. Pamela made a fresh lemon pie for breakfast, and Christan was doing the fresh bread buns for the next two or three days. Ah, there is nothing like homemade fresh baked products!

I now learnt the the helicopter yesterday buzzing around my head for an hour or so was sent out on a mixed mission, not only for watching over me – this would have been actually a bit of too much of an honor 🙂
Two of the passengers were actually the highest Navy boss of Puerto Williams and his wife, Marco Arellano Lawrence, on a yearly round trip to check on all the Navy outposts – they stopped here on the station of Isla Wollaston as well as on Cape Horn station and probably on some other places. Still, I’m hoping they were able to catch a lot of pictures of me paddling the Cape! Maybe I’m able to meet up with him once back in Puerto Williams.

Checking the forecast several times a day showed as usual lots of changes, but it seems that I can continue paddling on Friday. I may go for a walk tomorrow, I need to us my legs a bit 🙂

Sorry, not much more to tell today!
