Jessica rounds the Cape

I am still diligently checking Jessica Watson's blog. Very exciting - she just rounded Cape Horn, which is ... a milestone (what do I know? I've never sailed in my life). It sounds like her parents came to South America and did a fly-over as she rounded the cape... that just chokes me up! And the Chilean navy and Argentinian navy sent boats out to say hello! I cry!

I just can't believe this girl. I'm a little obsessed. She has been at sea for three months. She has not laid eyes on another person - or even on a piece of land - for three months - and she has about 5 more months to go. Sixteen years old! I know she has a phone and the internet and whatnot, but I am just so intrigued by the whole thing. Sixteen!
