This must have been the quietest night so far…but also the most magical one…
Already yesterday afternoon the wind had dropped off a bit and slightly veered. And as the forecast was predicting very light winds dead ahead, we decided to move a bit more south, to keep the wind for the coming days hopefully.
Gentle winds, a slight sea with only the odd funky swell, a brilliant fantastic moon lighting up the sky and the sea…nobody really seemed to care we were down to speeds of around 6 knots (instead of the 8 or so we had gotten used to) as it was all so magical being out on the deck under this endless sky, with an infinite seeming ocean around us.
This morning the full moon was still sitting bright and proud in the sky, throwing a path of glistening sea towards the west, while in the east the dawn was gently breaking and the first slivers of orange and rose tinged sky appeared.
Not only a magical night, but a truly magical morning.
