Deep blue sea

Forgive the typos, the boats moving and the typing position is awkward.
So, many muscles hurt, it leaks into my cabin, the boat is as creaky as ever, and most of my watchmates are seasick (and other crew, too).

But the sea is a marvelous blue, as is the sky, the helm has been refurbished and is still amazing me with the ease of steering, we*re sailing under fore and main topsails and forecourse at 5 knots, and I'm here!
We had a booby on the mates finger today and yesterday we ha a whale and a bunch of porpoises catching air a few dozen yards from the ship (yes, the whale, too).
