It’s been tempting…

… to sail on and try to get some cool breeze, but the last few days have been so scorchingly hot I’ve not done much, though I used my impromptu laundry again. Also continued fishing and eventually caught the most evil-looking creature I have ever seen, like a sort of particularly ugly catfish with the definite look of Jacques Chirac about it (subdued chuckle at the news of the Olympics – Confusion to the French, eh?). I had the greatest difficulty getting the hook out and threw it back on the spot, with mingled horror and guilt. I’ve put the fishing rod away. I don’t suppose I’ll use it again unless I’m desperate for food and marooned on the high seas. I could probably grill a fish on the anchor fluke in this heat.
