Crossing the Equator

Well we finally made the video of us crossing the equator in our lovely. 

It was in the middle of the night and we were down below since it was less than lovely conditions out on deck.  The nasty squall filmed earlier is still happening out there.  We were glued to the GPS monitor,  counting down the final minutes of North Latitude as we were southbound.  As we watched the numbers go down... OMG...!!  Can you guess what happened?

Now have a look and see!

  1. Dearest Cath and Bill,
    Regarding the first part of your video: I've never, in my life, been so happy to be in my kitchen.
    Regarding the end part of your video: That's got to be the only time that 0 degrees is exciting, but wildly exciting it must have been! And so funny that you missed 0!!
    We LOVED seeing this clip!!! xoxoxoxox

    1. Hi Jenny - I watched it very carefully everytime we play the part of counting down and... it never, ever does show 00.00.00 It just jumps from 1N to 1S !! No 0!! Notta! Humph! Oh well, at least we didn't really miss it :)

      Thanks for your nice note :) xoxoxox

  2. Wait a minute, maybe they turned around and going north again, oh, nope crossed the equator, going south, count down starts all over again...southward...

    That was so funny. Cath and Bill couldn't believe it. Excellent!

  3. Thanks for sharing this clip (as we get close to June 30th again). After all the times we survived with headlamps, so surprised to see you - actually, "not" see you - stumbling around in the dark!! Anyway, great symbolism to cross the "fat part" of our world. Here's hoping the next one is at least as much fun. We'll be watching.

    1. I think our headlamp batteries had burned out by then (we used them so much) and so had to wait til we reached our first landfall to get more (note to self: must provision way more batteries for our next leg!). We do have a lot of fun!

  4. Thanks for your comments everyone! Bill and I have watched this video over and over again (like living the real thing again!). Each time we watch it we laugh until it hurts and tears start flowing! I'm glad that we caught it on film :)

  5. That was really neat! Too funny how you were confused over the change in numbers. The squall did not look fun, but I know this trip must be amazing!

    You look as though you were having an absolute ball, despite the dark and the spillages!!! Actually it's rather romantic!
