We have arrived on the island after a very long day. Elijah did not want to risk missing the departure of the fishing fleet so we set out well before sunrise. In fact it was dark when we came into the fishing village and seemingly darker still as we cast off.
I was sick almost immediately. These small craft are nothing like our big ship. They bounce about too much. Elijah was stoic throughout.
As we passed the midpoint, another cloud bank descended obscuring the island. The fishermen hesitated and wanted to put about, but Elijah insisted we continue.
We rounded a point on the northern end and there the fog lifted, leaving a clear path into a lonely beach.
