A Morning Miracle

What is this vision? My husband in his dressing gown? Awake? At 8.30am on a Sunday morning? How can this be?

Don't worry. It is a temporary aberration.

Himself is currently sailing in the Volvo Round the World Ocean Challenge. I think he's presently in the Mediterranean. Every 10 minutes or so he checks the website to see what wind conditions are doing and adjusts his course and sail settings; although he did put it onto autopilot through the night :-) Hence his early morning foray into the waking world; he was just adjusting his course and checking his race position. I think he's in the first 5000 so far.

I wanted to take a picture of him sitting at the computer, wearing a life jacket but he was completely uncooperative!

Apparently there is a big prize if you are the online winner. I think its a car. Guess we could sell it to pay off some of the mortgage.....

(shouts)"Hoi, dear, check what position you're in now!!!"

Have a look.
