We've crossed the Equator and had a proper, although subdued due to the early time of the morning, celebration. This is Sue and myself's third crossing, and Matt's second. It's good to be back in the southern hemisphere. We could easily see the Southern Cross constellation right off our port bow earlier in the evening; it was like seeing an old friend we hadn't seen in a long time.
