Moonlit and dramatic heavy clouds share the sky with twinkling stars this morning. You mustn't breathe too deeply in this delicious tropical air or you will become intoxicated. By day the water is such a rich blue that it almost looks black when you look straight down, but by night it is an amazing expanse of black, dotted here and there with white caps and edged by a crisp horizon.

I wish I could share this part of shipping with everyone but I guess it is a treat for those of us who look for our lively hood out here.
