We really have not dropped off the planet!
We have been enjoying Tenerife for over a month, keeping busy and becoming negligent in making blog postings. Tomorrow we depart with the Atlantic Odyssey II rally for the crossing to Martinique.
Winds are unseasonably light so we likely will sail (motor) down to Cape Verde, buy more diesel and wait a few days for better weather before continuing onward to Martinique. There are several systems in the North Atlantic which are causing light winds down here, combined with higher waves and swell. It is going to be a rolling passage!
