Ships at Dusk ..
Well at last we get to see a ship it could not have
been any further from land , its exactly half way at 1500 nm from Land and
that's the nearest ! it silhouetted in the sunset just after the scummy meal I
cooked for the crew , yes I managed to please all of them , with cornbeef hash
bake , a recipe nicked from Lyn and Alison , masters of the art , anyway I
digress , the ship , well it took me back to my days as lookout on HMS/M
Finwhale , target sited I was rummaging for my Jane's NATO silhouette catalogue
, it looked very remanisant of a AGI ( Alien Gatherer of Intelligence) the title
which we used for the Russian spy ships we used to follow around at the
taxpayers expense, and I know some of the blogg readers who also indulged in
this will also weep in there beer with the thoughts of far flung trips , pity
boys you are having to pay Gordon back now eh !..
Anyway this vessel had a large array of radio
wires and sat antennae , it defiantly wasn't fishing , could have been a survey
vessel but I haven't seen that many brisling with that much antennae for a long
Gardner's Corner ..
It has been noted that Lyn has cultivated a green
lawn of seaweed on the bathing platform , we wondered why she spends so long on
the back rail fishing , anyway its grown at an alarming rate since we left the
Galapagos , it also has some little polyp tube like growths and our pet white
crab , who managed to hang in there for a week since we spotted him ,
unfortunately he must have been washed away in the large following seas we have
at the moment , still the lawn grows but no one has volunteered to trim it yet
Thanks to our first eminent legal minds view on the
"Incident " we await one other before putting the views of our learned friends
to the accused , the dastardly deed will be laid to rest !
Well its time to get back to the watermaker and
other ancillary duties as I have removed my chefs hat for another three days ,
Ruth has the honour today in the "Alton towers" galley ride attraction , bet all
those poncy TV chefs couldn't hack it whilst juggling the condiments , pots ,
pans , and still having to do the chart work at the same time , Gordon Ramsey
eat my pants ! there hanging on the back rail !
Avert your eyes now as I have been seen on the for
deck again in my underpants with life jacket on bent over the spinnaker pole ,
the crew complained , but reminisced over what it looked like " Tim Curry " in
the Rocky Horror Show , the cheek of it .
That's All folks for today , the fun ride crew
