Another Voyage in March

I'm back from another five days at sea. The weather didn't give us exactly what we wanted, but we motored down to Recherche bay, where I saw one of the best sunrises I've seen so far. Naturally, the camera did a poor job of capturing it, but here goes:

A couple of days later, we headed out the southern end of the channel to meet up with the HMB Endeavour replica.

The first mate was ready for this, and had his signal flags ready. This one said "welcome". Endeavour responded with something like "our weapons are not impeding your vessel" and a couple of salutes on their cannon.

We sailed side-by-side for a while, before going our separate ways.

When we came back, we had a look at her inside. She's moored just behind the Sea Shepherd vessel, Bob Barker.

For this voyage, I was one of the watch leaders, which means I didn't have much time to sleep or read. I made it through one book, though, which I will write about shortly.
