Bubbles on deck

Last evening, as we were coming off watch at 2000, the captain appeared on deck with a dish of soapy water and a loop of wire. The bubbles were amusing- even more so was watching him dance around the deck to try to get good photographs of them against the rigging.

I have been letting my beard and hair grow out since the trip started, since I had to shave for the first time in about 25 years, for my BST. I'm looking forward to a beard trim and haircut in a couple of weeks.

Today is ships Sunday, so we'll be dogging the watches- I'll be on 12 to 4 for the next week.

I fixed the kettle again- maybe this'll hold until we hit land. If not, it's pretty warm for hot drinks, in any case.
