“When you see the Southern Cross” Stephen Stills

Since fall  2014, Elizabeth Jean had been taking us south.  The further south we  moved, the more Alpha Crucis and the other stars in the Southern Cross winked their welcome.  We reached latitude 7 degrees, 16 minutes North, our furthest point south, in the spring of 2015 and lingered between 7 and 8 degrees North through this winter.  As we sailed due north from Providencia to Grand Cayman Island, the Southern Cross appeared nightly astern, framed by Elizabeth Jean‘s solar panel arch.  We were moving north fast towards more familiar skies and stars.
