Porpoise

Cutting through the waves
in graceful arcs,
a porpoise glides beside the boat.

Now back in our home port and once more able to get online. The sun is still shining and we have had a few wonderful days spent sailing in balmy conditions, what a contrast to the previous week!

    I’m going to try not to fry today as the sun is shining bright and we are soon off to the beach again for a few hours. We’ve got tents to set up, but yesterday, while we did get some rain on the beach it was lovely being a bit clouded.

    We’re headed home tomorrow so I’ll be doing catch up on the net Saturday. Hopefully I’ll post a stone in the morning and then I’ll be silent for a bit.

    Welcome home Libby – While it’s been fun I am looking forward to being home too.

      Thank you. It was a rare sighting, but we do see them occasionally – sometimes a pair arcing together, which is extra special.
