Before sailing from Tennerife we were able to witness a beautiful rainbow. " I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you, and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh."
Genesis 9:13
We started to sail January 31, 2009 at 1:30 p.m. for a nine day sail to Benin, West Africa.
Before sailing we were able to spend some time exploring Tennerife. These are some pictures the view of the Atlantic ocean and Hettie climbing the rocks.
