The weather is still battering us this morning, Force 5 gusting 40 knts, rolling seas and sailing speeds from 10 to 14knts – challenging conditions for us all. I fried up the left over rice from yesterday’s lunch for breakfast with extra veg and a few eggs, nice to have a bowl (never a plate) of tasty warm food to soothe the crew at times like this. Endless grey skies and damp weather, we are all hoping the sun makes an appearance soon. Using up the last of the fresh mushrooms, Dave made a delicious Carbonara’ish pasta for lunch. The wind drops to Force 3 late afternoon and the sun finally breaks through, we are treated to the most amazing sunset. We gather up on the fore deck to witness an utterly incredible sight and marvel at the beauty. It’s just like being in a movie set, it almost looks fake. Feeling steadied by the calmer seas, we settle in to watch A River Runs Through It, a timeless classic and beautiful story.
