Day 37 - Somewhere over the rainbow

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

As you keen blog followers will know Andy and I have been on the sea anchor a lot over the last week which was getting depressing.  We are finally back on the oars and making progress which is really good.  There has been a definite change in the weather and the most amazing thing is the amount of rainbows all around us, linked to nearby storms and rainfall.  Neither of us have ever seen anything like it and over the ocean they are really bright and intense.

I’ve got a couple of congratulations to pass on.¬† Firstly to Gubb well done on your new job and forthcoming trip with Nathalie - enjoy!¬† Secondly to Russ and Jess who we understand have got engaged and are planning to get married next year.¬† Really pleased for you both.

On a different not I’ve heard¬†we’ve been getting some stick¬†about¬†our choice of music so far on the boat and I would like to defend Enya and explain why¬†she fits the mood!¬† Let me draw you a mental picture: The sea anchor’s out, we’re sitting in a big storm and both me and Andy are laying naked in the cabin with waves crashing all around us (8-10 metres of swell and 40 knots of wind).¬† The last thing you want to listen to is anything too¬†aggressive, you just¬†want to chill out and escape.¬† Anyway enough of that business - you’ll be pleased to hear that with the storms gone¬†we’re listening to Black Sabbath and Metallica, a very manly collection.¬† Enya’s out and thank you all for showing¬†us the error of our ways.

Back to rowing.  Speak to you soon and keep the comments coming we are both enjoying them!
