Irony of Ironies
I can’t sleep. It’s too hot on the boat!!! So now I’m prowling about at 3:45 am, turning down thermostats and even opening my porthole. Mind you, that’s not a complaint ~ I’ll get it straightened out alright.
Meanwhile, I should be able to get back to sleep shortly. I picked up Darwin’s Voyage of the Beagle recently (technically known as Journal Of Researches Into The Natural History And Geology Of The Countries Visited During The Voyage Of HMS Beagle Round The World, Under The Command Of Captain Fitz Roy, RN), as KJ’s original name was Beagle and she was built to replicate Darwin’s travels through the Galapagos Islands. I figure this is one which definitely belongs in the ship’s library. As you might imagine from Mr. Darwin’s original title, it’s a bit on the dry side, although I’m still enjoying it so far.
I’ll be asleep again soon. And oh-so-grateful for the warmth on this ship when I wake up in the morning.
too hot beats cold any day.
