We Had To Keep Going All Night Long

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed)
Good morning, it is 3:00 AM EST. I believe it is 4:00 AM here, or maybe 4:40 AM. It is a little different out here as we are very close to the division where they add an extra half hour.
The sun is coming up. It is beautiful out, not quite glassy, but rolling small sea. Bob drove most of the night. I laid down to take a nap and I woke up off and on all night. That is one of the hazards of staying two days in the harbor. You get uncomfortable getting back on the boat.
Bob is a great guy; he drove almost all the night. I am grateful for that because I hate driving when it is pitch black. Anyway we are somewhere off the coast of Newfoundland heading between Saint John’s and Saint Anthony.
We are going to stop and fish today because this is the opening of cod season. We have been told how to catch the highly sought after cod fish. We hope that this way actually works. We will try to catch a couple and keep one, filet him up, and put him in a frying pan and see how that goes.
We will talk to you later. For those following where we are at we are straight off Locke bay. The coordinates are 49 degrees 57.88 minutes North and 053 degrees 12.42 minutes West.
Have a good day and God bless you.
