I was still sick yesterday: Out on the boat feeling terrible. I slept about 15 hours and feel better today. I am still weak but am going to go for a row and walk on the beach. My appetite is minimal, but I did manage to eat an egg with some French bread this morning.
The weather has cooperated to be cool and breezy. We had all the ports open last night and the wind kept up all night. I sat on deck and watched the dolphins around the boat. There were about 30 of them. Most swam in pairs, very close together in a beautifully synchronized water ballet. They came so close to the boat that I heard their breathing as they surfaced. What fascinating creatures they are. I wonder whether they are curious about us. I don't think they perceive the boat and me as a threat.
I watched the dolphins until near sunset. There was no need for fans last night. I even had a light coverlet pulled over me. What a relief from the humid blistering heat of last week!
I am afraid that I have nothing much of interest to write. It feels as if all my energy is going towards resting and forcing down some food. This was a bad virus. I think that just getting off the boat and lying in the sun will help.
It's interesting that I thought perhaps I had something really serious over the last couple of days. I am not paranoid about my health generally. I think about those who live with constant pain and suffering every day. I am fortunate to have some three day "bug" that will go away.
More tomorrow when I am thinking better.
