Abby Sunderland off of Baja

Wow, it’s only day eight, and that sixteen year old girl, Abby Sunderland, is already off of Baja California already.  I just can’t imagine the solitude and the almost pitch black of night in the middle of the ocean.  I also wonder what she does to keep her mind alert during the waking hours.  That’s got to be a lot of time way out there.   

It seems like it would be great to go all the way around the world in a sailboat for the spectical of it.  But the day to day sitting might feel a little imprisoning at times.  But hats off to her for having the guts and the patience!
