Kinship - Day 10

Day 10-- No moon, no stars, no discernible horizon--just black like the insides of a dog. In the middle of the night, 3 hours seem like forever and one does, in fact, feel like a dog. We usually sleep well on our off-watches, but a couple nights ago, when we had lumpy seas, it was hard to sleep on a roller coaster bounding through blackness. And with the waves punching Kinship in the stomach, it was almost sickening as she shuddered and then climbed the next wave after wave after wave. We can't but admire the strength and stamina of our little sailboat... hour after hour, day after day, she as laid her broad shoulder to the sea and plowed bravely ahead, like a running back taking the ball over the line.
