Someone turned the fan off but forgot about the wave machine, crickey who’s running this pool? We are moseying along today, and the boat is quiet, no jolting around, no gremlins hammering away at the bridgedeck, our timing as predicted has gone out of the window and we could be out here for another week or so at this rate, its not all bad, the sun is shining and the sea has warmed to 25C.
The boys have been laid a challenge to build something in Lego using every block, that should keep em busy for a while there are four storage boxes to get through.
The morning has been spent de-salting the decks and stainless, looking out the port-lights I can seed drifts of salt over a centimeter high, must find a way to harvest the stuff, that’s Christmas sorted.
Off to start my nightshift first watch 8-11 then Audrie and I swap every three hours until 0800hrs when the fun starts again numerous breakfasts, clothes changes, toys out, quick scrap over one particular lego or playmobile figure, thenbest mates for the rest of the day……..pure heaven. Rehua Out.
