Guess you are all reading the blog and even paying attention to what it says!
It didn’t take long after having published our last log, that we received the first email, asking us about an oddity in the numbers: how come that you can start the shower session with 10 people (1 + 8 + 1) and end it with 11 (1 + 1 + 9)?!
Well, first of all it was a little test to see if you were all paying attention….honest!
Now that was the obvious mistake….let’s see who will be the first to spot the not so obvious one…
But really, we do have a number nine male crew (or the 11th man if you will): it is Beasley, our little salty sea dog that has been travelling with us (for our regular blog readers, no it’s not Martin’s little dog from the Fastnet!).
Reason he didn’t really make it out here before is that he is a bit shy around people he doesn’t know. And also, seen how he didn’t bring his life jacket, he’s not allowed on deck by the skip. He’s been quite good this trip and has behaved well! It was just that when everybody was having a shower again, he wanted to join in the fun.
So there you are. Sure you’ll here some more from him now that he’s out in the open.
Just finished dinner here, a nice Indonesian style pork noodles dish with proper sate sauce (peanut sauce) and we’re all settling into night routine. Although there are a few more people on deck still than normal - must be because we all had some great afternoon napping going on (except for Red Watch that is, who were bravely holding the fort outside).
Just another night under the beautiful skies, with the moon illuminating a glistening path for us to St Lucia.
