We took full advantage of our rest day today, eating a big brunch of egg, bacon, and veggie quesadillas (there is a recurring theme here involving our meals). The storm that was forecast for last night and today didn’t materialize, so it was a great day for chatting in the posh, catching some sun, and catching up on journals and reading. Everyone’s legs appreciated the recovery from yesterday’s big effort. 

The forecasts going forward are pretty scattered, and aren’t really painting a clear picture, so at this point we’re in standby mode, waiting for our weather window to present itself. We’ll see when that happens, but until then, we are living really comfortably at 14 camp. We’ll be in touch with more news tomorrow.
