How’s that for a title: Dark Sun at 7:30? We are on our second sea day between Japan and the port for Beijing, China. I woke about quarter to seven and noted on the map that right about 7:30am we were just opposite the DMZ in Korea on our starboard side and China mainland on the port side.
The sun was shining brightly, the temperature was mild but you could “feel” the oppression building in the air. Or at least that’s how some other writer would put it. 🙂
Actually, the voyage from Japan has been quite nice. The sea has been almost glassy smooth and the sun has been out much of the time. Temperature in China tomorrow has been forecast at around 75 degrees F with sun so it should be a very nice day.
This area of the ocean is quite busy. There are literally hundreds of fishing boats; mostly on the North Korea side and quite a number of fishing net floats we are going through or around. Also, a number of cargo ships.
Nothing special in this post. Just finished a small personal pizza for lunch (planning a light supper) and needed to get that “dark sun” thing out of my brain. Thought it was appropriate. 🙂
