Miranda's Monday Morning Message

Beautiful night, sailing downwind, heading south (yes, I know, Guadelope is to the west, but the Azores High is also not far behind). It's a busy part of the world 3 ships in the last hour, including a cruise ship which passed a mile or so astern - lit up like a christmas tree - and no doubt eqipped with running hot water and a swimming pool or two amongst other amenities. I still prefer Campagne de France.
The inside of the boat is drying out, though shipping water over the deck from time to time, so no airing for now. I'm sure the boat smells of roses anyway. Life on board is pretty simple - steering, nav, check over boat, eating, sleeping, the latter in shortish supply.
Now I know that you want photos, but a selfie is out of the question right now, unless you want to see the latest "bird's nest" hairstyle.
Far better (at least for me!) - see attached - Janet the landlady of Hamble's fine establishment, the King & Queen, gave me the 2015 Hamble's Full Monty calendar, supporting Hamble Lifeboat. So I am taking a select few on a tour of the Atlantic.
