At Sea (Yet Again)

Today has been spent at sea on our way towards Phuket, in Thailand.

It was our final sea-day, which also meant it was the last of my on-board watercolour classes. Today, we did some Negative Painting…

After the class, we sat up on deck reading, with one eye on the ocean for any signs of life. We’ve got used to not seeing anything; the sea always seems like a great wet desert of nothingness. You know life is out there, but it just ain’t going to show itself for nothing…

And then it did…

An enthusiastic shout went up and folks dashed to the sides of the boat, in time to see a very large bunch of dolphins – about 48 of them all told, in groups of 4 and 5, bounding in from the starboard side and playing in the bow wave. It was a beautiful moment….

The clocks go forward half an hour tonight…
