Just thought I should touch base and reassure you that we are fine and dandy, still smiling and really rather proud of our day. Here’s why ’twas good:
Firstly, we survived some of the biggest seas I’ve seen out here and a rather soggy somersault – this has to be worth a smile. Said somersault was awarded 9.64 by The Tweedles. They said it would have been a perfect 10.00 but that my toes weren’t pointy or something. Fusspots.
Wrist not as bad as I thought either, it should be OK in a day or two. Found I had split my waterproof trousers in the scramble aboard. Now not very waterproof at the front. Ironic.
Now tucked up inside the cabin, Happy Socks on, munching chocolate and just having read all the lovely bloggage.
We are going West – this is always worth a thousand hoorays.
Fewer than 1300 nauties from Mauritius and with lovely SE winds forecast to stay and play until Tuesday, we’re going to rip up some miles. In 40 miles we’ll be over 2,000 from Perth and in 4 days we’ll have been at sea for 3 whole months. Crazy! One quarter of one year.
The Frustrated Imp has been banished again after his recent sneaky return. And Ricardo says all is OK, therefore I believe him.
Thank you everyone for the sweet messages for Mum and I. Worry ye not though, I am still laughing, Dippers is looking after me and I am looking forward to tomorrow. Whole new day. We may even make it across the border to the 70’s! Only another 30 nauties…
Cheerio, S x
