Oh no! I hear we’re missing Celebrity Big Brother? (I knew there was a reason we chose to spend so long at sea in a tiny red boat with no TV!)
Day 3 on The Good Ship Explore (to be read in the BB accent obviously!)
Well the sun is shining and life on the ocean wave is good. Conditions today aren’t too bad. The wind could be in a better direction but I guess you can’t have everything. The sea is fairly ‘lumpy’ for want of a better phrase... I’m sat in our living room writing this blog and have just heard Mel swearing at the sea as a big wave decided to crash all over her! What she doesn’t realise is that the sea can be bribed.. I complement it daily just to keep it on my side!
One of our oars broke during the night so we’ve fixed that today along with a few other bits and bobs. I’m off to cook lunch in a minute then its back on the oars for me for another 4 hours solid.
I had a strange experience during the night... Let me tell you about it but promise not to mention it to Mel as she’ll think I’m a nut-job and chuck me overboard! I swear to God at about 4am we rowed past a village! I could make out some really specific shapes in the clouds... There were buildings, cars, caravans and people on the beach. My dog was even there barking at me! I knew it was all in my imagination but at the time it all seemed so spookily real! I’m not sure if I was just so exhausted that I was actually asleep and rowing at the same time or whether I’d started hallucinating! For once I can’t even blame it on wine!
Until next time...
