In haste once again, as it’s a bouncy old night here on the big blue ocean, and I’m keen to get safely horizontal and strapped in. But I wanted to check in and let you know that all is well on board the good ship Sedna.
It has been a challenging but productive day – sunny and windy and mountainous waves once again giving me fine views across the ocean. The chaps downstairs have been keeping me company, with clusters of 5 or 6 yellowfins frequently visible in the crest of a wave, lining up like surfers and whizzing down the front face as it rolls past me.
And I’ve figured out why the dorados jump so often. It’s so they can take a peek above the surface to check where their favourite FAD is and come back to me!
Today I finished one good book and started another, both of which have contributed to my good mood. The first was Straight Man
And the second recommendation is Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography
In fact, the book is so good that when my third and last set of Aquapac earbuds gave up the ghost this evening, I really had no choice but to retrieve my dry-land earbuds from the fore cabin – and this was no trivial task in 20-foot waves, believe me. It is simply the audio equivalent of a book that I can’t put down!
