Day’s Run – 8 March, 2019

Yesterday afternoon the winds and sea made up strong. Sea got pretty lumpy and cross-grained; they still are pretty lumpy and confused. The ship is moving about quite a bit. Steering will give you a sweat. The more experienced and better helmsmen get to put in extra time at the wheel. Last night quite a whistle in rigging. A good way to reclaim one’s sea-legs. And ship’s cook Donald is putting out some fine meals. On we sail.
