Sunrise This Morning
IN THE MIDST OF A DEPRESSION

News came from our weather man yesterday that by evening we would be sitting smack in the middle of a depression. Some confusion amongst our North Eastern boys as to what this meant sent Nige and George diving for the medical kit to find the Prozac. The real reason however was that the centre of the low pressure system we were in would pass directly overhead. Preceeded by over an hours torential rain, taken firmly on the chin by Steve and Rob, the forecast proved correct. Once again we were to see the real beauty of nature in perfect circumstances. All wind disappeared, the ocean became flat calm and the previously grey sky opened to show patches of blue. All around us in a near perfect circle the low could be seen, with its rainstorms on the horizon. This lull in proceedings was to be shortlived and as the low passed through more squalls cleaned off the decks on NATTY B. With the passing of the low has come the Westerlies we have been waiting for, how long for we don't know, but we'll be making the best of whatever comes.
Let's not forget we're also out here supporting THE MENINGITIS TRUST. So take a moment to check out the link on our website, maybe make a dontion, or just get some info on this cruel disease. It might save someones life one day.
Now check out the sunrise in todays image, it's all worth it just for 'moments in time' like that.
Yours Aye, The Crew.
