During the "middle watch", three o'clock in the morning, it is the 28th of July. The moon is up and the sun is on its way, just a small breeze and we are sailing towards Bormholm.
About telling time on-board
In Swedish we call this watch between 00.00-04.00 the "Dog Watch" Hundvakten (it is not the same as the english dog watches 16.00-20.00) It can be really hard to stay awake if it isn't a lot to do. This particular morning it was stunningly beautiful and it was very calm so we had the computer on deck and listened to Spotify and had a great time.
When I'm at sea it is very important for me to take some of my gardens goodies with me, flowers, berries, fruit and veggies. Oh.. and the most important all the different herbs. It is much more fun to cook with ingrediences from the garden. One of my favourite tomatoes is the beautiful heirloom Goldsman's American/Italian tomato. This time it ended up in a delicious pie in good company with peppers, feta cheese and olives.
