Sailing from Madeira to the Canaries: Listening to Audio Books

Very Well Organized Cemetery on La Graciosa Island, the Canaries, Spain

(October 5 – 7, 2017) It took us two days (one day sailing and one day motoring) from Madeira Island to La Graciosa Island in the Canary Islands. Motoring is noisy and the diesel fumes are smelly. A Bright moon appeared sometimes which helped the nightly watches. A small bird traveled with us on the boat. John found two dragon flies and also got bitten by a black/yellow striped fly. Where were they from at sea? He also found a flying fish on the deck. (After arriving at a new place, I grilled the flying fish and gave it to Swat, one of the cats. She ate the de-boned fish very fast.)

After two days leaving Madeira Island, approaching to the Canary Islands, Spain

Prior to this trip, I downloaded many audio books from the Broward County Library in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where I have my home. When the sea is not smooth, I don’t read e-books because reading e-books makes me seasick. Listening to audio books via a blue tooth headset, has been working great for me.

During this trip, I enjoyed listening to “What I know for Sure” by Oprah Winfrey and “Seriously… I am kidding” by Ellen DeGeneres. I also started listening to “The Book of Joy” (Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu Interview) and “Aging Well” by Mark E. Williams. At the same time, when the sea is calm, I read “MONEY, Master the Game” by Tony Robbins. All interesting books. I like self-help books and learn to improve myself. I will never stop learning.
