Made it back to my second home. Seems i have missed some news too – three more bombs yesterday. word on the street is that tomorrow there will be yet another!
So, what have you been doing all summer?
On the trip back into the med, we actually saw a whale. the big beauty was sleeping on the surface when the skipper spotted it so we slowed down and drifted alongside it, maybe 50 feet away. As we prepared to get in and swim with it, it woke up and made it’s dive to freedom. I managed to get one picture off, just as its tail was in the air and it went down for cover.
We also ran into the biggest pod of dolphins i have ever seen. they were all around us. 8 abrest at the bow and flanked on both sides by others as they played and jumped in our wake.
I have added a few photos for your viewing pleasure.
Back in the Med, things are hotting up. we are preparing for the bosses last few trips before we hit the yard again. We have already covered enough miles since april to have crossed the atlantic 3 times or more and come november we might just do it for real too.
To celebrate my 4th decade on this planet, i have also ordered a new surfboard. details are winging their way to Davy in St Agnes and hopefully it should be ready for me to collect within a month or so. I may just head back to the UK in october to celebrate my birthday so keep checking in for details.
Thats all for now – stop by and say hello soon.
