Life at sea has its cost. It’s very tiring trying to stay standing all the time, great workout for your legs and glut’s. Taking a shower is a bit of a circus act, and I’ve only had one in calm seas so far, I hate to think what’ll happen when things get rough.
We also have to get used to the meal times. We start breakfast at 07:30, and are finished with dinner by 17:30. In between we have a full cooked lunch, snacks at 3ish, and a free for all fridge with all sorts of goodies and an assortment of fruit all day long. The thing is, we’re working ALL the time, so by 23:00, we’re all hungry again. Oy Vey…
I complained to you earlier about the sleeping arraignments, but I must admit that there is some advantage to a little rocking and the constant noise of the engine. We all slept like babies in a car.
Already three days in, and it seems that everyone is over their sea sickness. I had the pleasure of experiencing motion sickness for the first time in my life, luckily it only lasted a few hours and with the help of a little pink pill and a good night’s sleep, life’s good again. When the queasy Assaf asked Anton, the guy who knows everything about science at sea and a real sea man, what the best way to avoid sea sickness is, he answered: “stay under a tree”. Smart guy!
We haven’t seen any dolphins yet, but we did see a whale! Actually, we saw a small silver line, with a splash way out on the horizon. It was so far away you had to use a bit of imagination but hey, a whale is a whale.
I think that’s all for now, next time I will elaborate a little more on what we’re actually doing here.
